Centenary Walk

More signposts and a bridge added to the walk

On Saturday 22nd Feb a small team of us headed off to clear vegetation that was obscuring signage on metal posts that are awaiting our metal finger posts to be attached. Armed with loppers, secateurs, saws and bags to take away the trimmings, four of us from the walk team set to work undaunted by the weather. We cleared a post just off of the B1000 and posted letters through the houses on the private road to let them know we were planning to explain the work we were doing. More vegetation cleared around a metal post Stanborough to Ascots Lane, and attached a missing way marker there.

We then went to Digswell to secure some of our new wooden posts that had been loosened by unknown persons! 

That work morning, was followed by another on Monday 24th.  Our greatly appreciated Wood Wardens came to install two more of their wooden posts either side of THE NEW BRIDGE in The Commons. We are very excited to have the bridge installed! Very muddy work with the ground incredibly wet but our bridge has now the needed signage.  

Another post and way marker was put in by the B1000 where we had been on Saturday, and a final wooden post on Ayot Green, directing walkers as they come over the A1 bridge into Ayot Green to the footpath path towards the Waggoners and entrance into Brocket Golf Club.  The post can be viewed from by walkers coming back from Brocket Golf Club too.

Home made delicious biscuits from Deb concluded the morning’s activities.
Lots of ticks off our “to do list”.
