Ilkley moor is being 'improved' at a dramatic rate. The laying of stone flag paths that started on the top is trickling down the moor in several directions.
I have very mixed feelings over this. On the one hand it makes sense from a usage/impact perspective, it is a sensitive environment. On the other hand the world has enough pavement already without paving the great outdoors. It even makes walking my dog less fun up there. If only the 'Friends of Ilkley Moor' had talked to Singletraction or similar in order to learn about sympathetic multi-use trailbuilding techniques before they ordered so many flagstones.
Paving the countryside is an 'improvement'. Discuss.
