On 03-Sep-2014 built 2 s/b on Corley Moor then on 17-Sep-2014 a
WP replaced 2 Stiles with 2K/gs on ACW route just south of
Bubbenhall, near Broomhill Farm.
The 1st s/b under
construction : 3-Sep-2014
Both s/b nearly
All done! : 3-Sep-2014
On 3-Sep-2014 we returned to build two more
sleeper bridges at Corley Moor on ACW route just south of the
long s/bs installed in 2013. Each s/b was two sleepers long
and two sleepers wide, and we built a raised path (& bridle
route level crossing) and drainage channels to ensure all works
Another dry and sunny day made working a pleasure. All
tasks completed by c.13:00. Some of us then yet
again went to the Butchers Arms for a good lunch.
On 17-Sep-2014 we returned to install two more
k/g on ACW route just south of Bubbenhall, near Broomhill Farm.
Site 1 "Hedge Stump": 17-Sep-2014
Site 1 finished k/g:
The first k/g looked an easy task, but removing the
old stile revealed a hedge stump perviously hidden under the stile
step - fortunately the WCC Ranger was still on site and had his
chain saw ready to help - but it still needed some hard digging to
clear the way. Fitting the k/g was then easy!
Site 2 k/g and fence completed :
The second k/g looked more like a challenge, with the "stile" to
replace actually being an ancient oak gate attached to everything in
sight! In practice it came out without too much trouble, and
installing the k/g was easy but then we had to build the new fences
either side producing a smart looking solution.
Yet another dry and sunny day! All tasks completed by
c.13:15. Some of us then yet again went to the
Malt Shovel and enjoyed a good lunch.
