Swansea Ramblers Stile Replacement at Fairwood Airport
The Swansea Ramblers Work Party went out with members of Swansea Council Footpath Department to construct a new stile.
This will allow access between the north and south sections of the footpath crossing Fairwood Common.
The old stile had rotted away and its remains had disappeared beneath the undergrowth.
For some time people have had to climb over the locked gate in order to use the path.
The work party cleared the area for the new stile and opened up the right of way.

Takes a lot of effort to fix the posts

Well that was fun!
Now let the experts do it
Guess who was the first to test the stile
Job done (almost!)
