A useful and informative notice in the Albert Park

April 27, 2017

Ben found the notice on a tree in the park. He said “It’s a useful and informative notice, but it would be a lot more useful if you could actually read it without having to stand under the tree … Hand included for scale.”
I am glad they are keeping the tree as it is one of my favourite Abingdon trees
I am less keen on the tree that is growing through the roof of nearby Conduit House.
Nature is no respecter of historical monuments.

    Given how strict H&S regulations are over relatively minor matters I’m surprised that a dangerous tree is allowed to remain in a public park with so little to protect the public. There’s even a notice so that anyone who is hit by falling branches knows that the “we” admit liablity !

    I think this is a hoax.

    Coming home at about 7pm on Wednesday I was surprised to see workmen digging up the footpath/cyclepath near the crossing off Audlett Drive near Thames View.
    It seems that Thames Water have dug a big hole put up barriers around it with notices saying it will be fixed by April 30th!
    It’s a part of the National cyclepath and popular with lots of people who live in Sherwood Avenue and beyond. Of course, having got as far as the alley no one wants to go all the way back and round.
    Seeing the path full of mud covered in tyre tracks and footprints the british spirit isn’t broken.
    Everyone is walking around it over the undergrowth.
    I tried looking on their website and there are hundreds of pins on the local map about planned work but nothing near Audlett Drive.
