Bridleway HO18 is Now Cleared

On 3rd April 2017 a Four man Ramblers’ Working Party cleared Bridleway HO18 right through to join up with where the Balfour Beatty team had chain sawed fallen and overhanging trees.

To mark the occasion I fixed a Bridleway waymark to the second gate from the Roman Road to clarify the route.

I still have to walk the complete Bridleway though to Sutton St Nicholas to ensure there are no other problems but I believe that HO18 is now “Fit for Purpose” and hope to see it used by horse riders and other permitted users.

We deliberately left the first corner wide enough for a horse but too narrow for a car to discourage any motorised traffic from attempting to use it.
