Ramsdell Hall Railings - project completed!
On the night following the AGM (10th December 2010), Stuart & I
gave a talk to IWA Stoke Branch, at the Stoke on Trent Boat Club,
Endon, on our work at Bosley Lock 4 Sidepond and Ramsdell Hall Railings.
It seems to have gone well, as a couple were inspired to walk along
by the railings on Sunday.
Unfortunately they discovered a bottom
rail near to the quarter milestone had been pushed out since Mr
Worth's repairs in November and been thrown into a nearby bush. This
info was passed on to me yesterday by Alison Smedley.
Stuart & I visited the site this morning (14th
December 2010) and rescued the rail, and it is now with me awaiting
fitting at a later date. While we were there, we fitted the two plaques,
one at the north end of the moorings by the gate to the Little Moreton
Hall footpath and the other opposite the hall and close to the quarter
milestone. Let's hope these plaques with the list of sponsors of
the project will deter future vandalism. It was numbing work adjusting
the nuts & bolts
with bare hands! Apart from the repair and tidying up of paintwork
blemishes, that's the project completed!
