Warwickshire County Council have the objective of making public footpaths easier to negotiate and where paths cross boundaries they have a priority list for best practice.
Up until a couple of years ago WCC funding enabled the KFPG to replace stiles with gates and kissing gates, even if the stile was sound. However funding cuts now mean that stiles are only replaced now when they become unsound.
In 2018 the KFPG started to fund the production and installation of roadside fingerposts using money gained from the sale of our walks book Kenilworth and Beyond.
This has resulted in the installation of roadside fingerposts in Kenilworth, Leek Wootton, Hill Wootton, Blackdown and Ashow. These show the destination and distance in miles.
In 2019 this work will be expanded to other villages in the area.
The tasks we carry out, such as installing posts, kissing gates and bridges, together with path clearance, are suitable for all levels of ability and fitness so everyone can contribute. All tools are supplied. We always welcome additional helpers, why not join us?
