During our stay in August we managed to break the electric gate openers on the main gate.
The problem was that a car had caught the centre stop of the gates and bent the fixing screws, which when we tried to open the gates, one of the screws caught on the bottom of one of the gates and stopped it opening. The result was that it put additional pressure on the opener fixing on the post and pulled the fixing bolts out of the wall.
We have a great guy that does a lot of the little repair jobs for us as well as some improvement works. As usual he has done a great job on the repair. See the pictures to see the progress, I think they are self-explanatory.
The big rock was put there whilst the gate openers where removed to stop the gates swinging in the wind.
