Bits and bobs everywhere

All in a day’s work … Post TT replaced at Moses Gate Cromptons Lodges (see photo), and minor map update to help find it.
Significant map update at Moses Gate Darcy Lever to make it easier to find posts S and K.
Painted everything but discovered 3 missing posts at Worsley Woods.
Discovered missing post N at Brabyns.
Moved the letter Q nearer to its circle at Kersal Dale.

Lots of maintenance

A couple of days of maintenance activity his week:

Checks of Chadderton Hall Park, and Strinesdale.  New S/F plaques at the S1 and S2 starts at Daisy Nook. Rotted plaque D replaced at Gorse Hall.

Missing plaque O replaced at Burrs Country Park. Rotten post Z replaced and missing plaque D put in at Hoyles Park. Missing post A replaced at Queens Park Heywood. Missing post R replaced at Moss Bank.

Photo is the bridge at Queens Park Heywood, from near post A.

Posts restored at Debdale

Post R replaced (and slightly repositioned to be less vulnerable); post S replaced, and post N restored to a vertical position.

Even so, the course is incomplete – posts K and Q have vanished (possibly knocked out by mowing) and post U has been snapped off (we’ve left it propped up).

Also noticed new work on a path to a Remembrance Memorial.

Tour of Bolton

Really soggy underfoot today.  Two posts replaced at Queens Park, Bolton. One re-sited at Moses Gate Crompton’s Lodges; another post replaced and one re-sited at Moses Gate Darcy Lever, but both parks have another post missing. Tours of Leverhulme Park and Moss Bank found one more post missing.
