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.
