Another Chiltern bridleway 'ruined'…
Trying to picture exactly where this is, I think I know; when you’ve gone up Hogtrough Lane past the farm and houses on the left there is a fork: the left route takes you up to an already murdered trail to (eventually) the top of a nasty road climb at the end of Hale Lane, the route you’ve taken a picture of is the right side of that initial fork?Posted 6 years ago
I came across that on Sunday, bit of a surprise but I’m in 2 minds as to whether it’s a bad thing – that bit was mostly unusable anyway as the gulley was too deep to pedal in and it had several fallen trees. I’m treating it as a more convenient route back up; if you want something interesting coming down that way most people used one of the parallel footpaths anyway.
Is it for easier farm access or something?
Strangest thing about it is that it’s only been “improved” about half way up, so no. Probably more to do with horsey access.Posted 6 years ago
What material is it exactly? It looks tarmac-y from the picture.
Hardcore base and then tarmac scrapings; so pretty crap to actually ride on (either up or down). And my wife’s ‘horsey’, and its not something they want either.
Good job the footpath on the left is still there 🙂Posted 6 years ago
The one from Hogtrough Lane to Kingsash…
What you can’t see from here is that is was about 15ft deep originally.
Yes it was heavily overgrown and a deep gulley, but that’s because it doesn’t really go anywhere (that a bridleway user would use) and has separate footpaths’ either side. Talking to the contractors its seems that Bucks CC spent £15k on it. And all it really needed was a couple of trees that had fallen, removing.
