A little trip out to Macclesfield Forest today – first to replace post X which has been disappeared by felling operations, and second to update the map with the current extent of said felling operations.
X has been repositioned on a wall corner about 100mNE of its old site (see photo). It is slightly non-standard vs all the other posts in the forest as we haven’t got a set of replacement plaques yet.
A drizzly day of maintenance jobs … post T restored at Wythenshawe (photo); post K restored at Bramhall and the new path along the West edge added to the map.
Contrasting degrees of difficulty – Wythenshawe is solid clay after a couple of inches of soil; Bramhall is very sandy all the way down.
Three shiny new posts and bits of painting, on a lovely winter’s day. Picture is new post E.
Two replacement posts installed and a refurbished one at Woodbank Park.
Picture is post N being refurbished.
We are back! Normal service has been resumed. Thank you for your patience.
Our apologies for recent service unavailabilities. We have had some drama transferring to a new hosting service, and hopefully now all will be stable again.
Possibly the best smartphone orienteering app to date – MapRun. Check out the smartphones page – we have half-a-dozen of our most popular parks set up for it – Chorlton Water Park, Dove Stone, Heaton Park, Lyme Park, Sale Water Park, Wythenshawe Park.
Three posts replaced at Worsley Woods, and one thought to be missing re-discovered. Photo is post TN.
Also slipped in a full check of Dukes Drive.
All posts checked and painted.
Note that there’s a rogue post V where the top path crosses the unusual row-of-slabs wall near post T (see picture). This is not the V you are looking for – the real one is 150m SW of this impostor. No idea how this has come about!
Another beautiful Autumn day.
Post N replaced at Brabyns Park (photo). Everything painted and plaque’d at Bruntwood Park. Changes to path network mapped at Mirrlees Fields.
