Next WPPrevious WP ACWA Working Party

On 16-Aug-2017, a WP cleared most of the path near start of Walk 16 (point 7),  and repaired a stile on Walk 18 (just South of point 6).

Site 1 : Clearance Walk 16 (point 7) : 12-Jul-2017

August Achievements

Site 1 : Clearance Walk 16 (point 7)

We started on the clearance from the NE end, but about 50 metres Bob C used the hedge cutter to cut into a wasp nest - nasty!  The rest of that team therefore moved to the SE end of the house and cut further SW from there and back west NE to a safe distance from the angry wasps.

Simon closed the wasps stretch of the path, and since then the wasps have been dealt with, and Simon is returning to clear the wasp stretch.

Site 2 : Stile Repair Walk 18 (just South of point 6)

Bob C and Roger moved to the stile and made a good repair with second hand timber.

Site 2 : Improved Stile on
Walk 18 : 12-Jul-2017




The next WP will be on Wednesday 20th September.


Wednesday 20th September 2017 at 9:30 am to about 1:00 pm

Location: Hodgett's Lane (GR 263 768) to slope down to Greenway just before bridge over Greenway - Part of Walks 3 / 3A.
Park at: Hodgett's Lane (a few spaces near to GR 263 768 and a few more further along Hodgett's Lane c.100 metres near to the NW where Walk 3A goes NE via a k/g)
Meet at: As above 

Continue to improve further the muddy parts beyond the culvert by improving ditch to NW side, & improve the main path.  If we have a good turnout, and the weather helps we may be able to finish that stage.
