Farningham Wood News Update - 04-12-2011
Not many people walk the bridleway that separates our campsite from the Nature Reserve, but if you did ask them about the condition of our boundary fence they would probably have a picture like this in mind:
Not much too see, and in a sorry state of repair !
Which isnít totally correct, as only a surprising 30m of fencing has totally collapsed along the entire 368m boundary. However, it wouldn't take much effort to knock down more, as the fence posts have pretty much rotted away at ground level.
So, as part of the 5-Year Development Plan for the campsite, plucky volunteers have started replacing the fence posts. We also intend to fit top & middle rails, and then some stock fencing to deter dogs from entering the campsite.
The posts were sourced from our own campsite as
part of another project to resume the ancient art
A total of 70 were replaced on the last working weekend by a team that comprised of only 2 on the Saturday morning, but thankfully grew to 8 on the Sunday.
This represents over half of the boundary along the bridleway, and it is estimated that another 52 posts will complete this phase of the project.
