We installed two new kissing gates and a new signpost on Circular Walk 7, north of Weston Lane, Bubbenhall.

Second new kissing gate

The first new kissing gate is located where the path north leaves Weston Lane, Bubbenhall (GR 363 709). This replaced an extremely wobbly and hard to climb stile.

The second kissing gate is located at the far side of the first field to the north (GR 365 710), and although in fair condition and easy to climb was nearly due for replacement. The next two kissing gates heading north are both in poor condition and are planned for replacement in June.

We only had a team of 4½ (one on light duties with an injured back) but weather was dry & sunny all morning and digging easier than usual, so we were finished by 1:00pm. We then went for lunch at the Malt Shovel, Bubbenhall, arriving in sunshine but leaving with the arrival of the first heavy shower on cue as forecast. We will return next month.
