Funny old car and bike scrapyard tucked away on Hillside close by Alan’s little B&W cottage which must run to different time standards as we saw nothing of its occupants in spite of as much noise as we could make. Whilst a small group set off doing a tree surgeon’s round on Penny and Rodge Hills, the ranks set to to remove the old rotten style, dig out holes then put JP’s hand made job back in, and very good it looked too (it IS upright, honest, Ian’s iPhone proved it). Simon’s bang with a large hammer on the southern upright made it more so after we thought we had it very firmly fixed in place. Three or four steps, job done. Jan’s welcome coffee in the Pudford Lane lay bye then early doors to unload at JP’s.
For the record, problems on nearby MT570–bars across the path and a rotten stile reported to County in June 15 with no result–have re-reminded them as of today and asked what we should do–thanks Ian for raising this.
