The “Clee View Fixed This” posters have been posted on the recently refurbished Hinton bridle way.
Great news, we have just heard from the council that they will provide the materials necessary to improve the drainage on Route A, Hinton to Hardwick Forge. This is a major project and will make an important route usable again.
Steve, John and Chris had a site visit to survey the route on Wednesday and Chris emailed Tim (Rights Of Way Officer) with a schedule of materials and work plan. Tim contacted Chris next day and had agreed to finance the materials.
The drainage pipe will be on order this week and will be delivered to John’s and we can then order the stone when we need it direct from the haulage contractor who will invoice the council. Materials to be supplied are –
Work party to put signs up to mark route Y from Cleeton St Mary Church up hill to avoid dangerous wet areas. Meet at back of church by start of bridleway. If enough people are available then also need to do some clearance work on Hinton bridleway (Route A).
32 Tonnes of stone provided by the council have been laid by a work party (John, Steve, Cyril, Chris). The route is now easily passable with no more disappearing into bottomless mud. Many thanks to all involved.
We will arrange a work party to clear the other end which is over grown and may need some digger work.
