Next WPPrevious WP ACWA Working Party

On 11-Mar-2015 a WP further improved the path S of Birchley Hay Wood.  An appropriate task to celebrate our No 100 WP News! (But see Next WP ...)

View to West Before : 29-Jan-2015

 View to West After : 11-Mar-2015

March Achievements

On 11-Mar-2015 we returned to the task started on & just before 13-Aug-2014 (see WP News 094) and a WP further improved the path S of Birchley Hay Wood.

The photos above looking West show the mud reported during the survey on 29-Jan-2015, and the similar view on 11-Mar-2015.  A new load of stones were spread deeper, and a drainage channel lined with stones was created to allow overflow from the floods forming in the field to the south and divert them to the ditch north of the path

In the longer term we hope the planned drainage channel and culvert will divert the full flood to the pond.

The photo on the right is the view looking East show how we spread most of the remaining stone on the driest route, hopefully adequate to make a dry walk for Challenge Event 2015. 

 xxxxx: 11-Mar-2015

Some of the stones are left in two small heaps in case weak spots emerge soon.  Longer terms more ditch digging and more stones may be needed.

A sunny wintry morning, with cloud increasing &rain forecast for 1:00 pm.  Good planning got All tasks completed by c.Noon.  Most of us then yet again went to the Bull & Butcher and enjoyed a good lunch.


The next WP is due on on Wednesday 18th March 2015.  We plan to return to the site for WP News 01 to do repairs, adjustments and mud elimination from those two stiles, and other sites on ACW nearby.  Appropriate plans for WP New 100 announcement?
