Gates and a stile - fettling and fiddling!
On a day that got increasing hotter, Ray and Frank H sweated over a series of problems with gates and a stile on the footpath that leads up from Kershaw Drive to the track running from Ellen Royd Farm to Greave House.
Gate hinge has become detached.
Gate closure spring has become detached.
Hinge straps have lost some screws (not in photo).
Gate palings are loose (not in photo).
All these defects were remedied and the structure made safe . . . and (at the moment!) it all works smoothly.
