On 15-Jul-2015 a WP cleared a stretch of blocked path on CW03
leaving Cromwell Lane.
The big blockage before and after
clearance. After looks as
good as the path turns left then
This path was reported as badly blocked.
The worst points were the bracken just beyond the end of
the initial path and one of the overgrown areas of shrubs
where the path was completely blocked (users had created a
bypass by going through the fence on to the old football pitch
area and then back again).
Heavy clearing was needed on many other parts, including
the path immediately leaving the road, and the WMP was leaning
due to rotting under the ground.
Final photo of path from the road and re-erected WMP -
Using similar strategy to Jun WP, progress was good, but some
parts of the path were simply cleared to about a 1 metre wide
to allow immediate use. When we have time we will return to
create a 2 metre path which should still be usable for a year
or so, and will only need a small team with two Battery Hedge
Trimmers and a small amount of use of Loppers & saws.
A small team did a recce forward all the way to the edge of Black
Waste Wood to see & photo a few key jobs needing planning.

All tasks completed by by about 13:35. Some
of us went back to the Peeping Tom and enjoyed a good
lunch, but lunchtime was from c. 13:00 to 14:30 in shifts to fit in
with afternoon commitments.
