- Cranham Riders, roofing tack alert.
Tyres/tubes can be repaired…what about wild animals?….people walking dogs?..not so nice!Posted 8 years ago
Was up in Cranham on mon, spent time clearing branches and logs laid lengthways on Teachers.Did see a curious chap walking in the woods with a news paper dilivery bag over his shoulder….strangely enough he looked like JB…
slipped out for a beautiful summers evening ride, cruising out the end of the shrine, hissssss and tick tick of something in the rubber. lo and behold a large new roofing tack in the wheel. i checked the top of the shrine, as we had found them before there, but none so its possible theyve been scattered further down, had a look but didnt find any. not to say they aint there. this coupled with sats ride spent clearing blockage after blockage esp broken, bent saplings. bowens pissing me off a bit now. btw im still trying to arrange this meet with wardens etc and will post when something comes together.Posted 8 years agomrmoMember
Goz, I think that they are private, but i get the impression that they are common land. Plenty of permissive bridleways etc. Even the signs from English Nature further down don't talk about access restrictions but usage restrictions.
I would agree that signs won't help. I know this sounds cruel but what is needed is for someone to hurt their dog and start kicking off in the Citizen and Echo, get the police involved, but keep cyclists out of it. It has to be a horse/ horse rider or dog that gets hurt.Posted 8 years ago
Funny I was thinking how things seemed to have calmed down recentyl up there! I think it's just a case of being vigilant and theese tossers will eventually lose interest, I would however probably look at things slightly different if one of my hounds injured themselves because of roofing tacks! I wonder if the teachers "damage" is anything to do with people staying at the campsite?Posted 8 years agoMr AgreeableSubscriber
The woods seem to be privately owned, and were up for sale last year.
Edit: the sale description says it was leased to Natural England (English Nature) in 2004.
Good luck sorting this out – I rode in that neck of the woods for the first time recently, and it's lovely.Posted 8 years ago
I like this Open Access Land business…have a look below:
"The national restrictions and local restriction powers only apply to CROW access rights. (meaning that they COULD stop access (i.e. by building a huge big wall or wire fence, but as this is open /commom land with other access…it ai't going to happen!), but in the current location and situation this would not be possible.
They do not affect what people already do: by local tradition or tolerance; – A precedent is already set with dog walkers, horse riders, runners, snowboarders ;), mountain bikers etc…….they can not stop what is already ongoing and has a history!
with express permission; on public rights of way such as footpaths and bridleways; or under any other existing rights or arrangements that apply locally. Your ‘access authority’ (the national park or highway authority) has special powers to help you manage the new access rights.
Job done, lets find JB and string him up form which favourite tree he choses !Posted 8 years agodobiejessmoMember
Hi all was up their yesterday morning going down teachers right at the bottom was 4 big branches across track,cleared them then turn left for the jump and noticed the face of jump has been dug out so you could not roll it and may go over the bars NICE!!!!!!!!!!.Also how long has the jumps by the shrine mound been messed about with the table top type one has been dug out too and the next is shorter in height?The rest was ok wall/racetrack/scout field/cranham corner and the portway ones.The new track at the portway needs using hardly see it through the small bomb hole.Dont want to upset anybody but have never punctured in Cranham first time for everythink.Posted 8 years ago

Tang: if you click on Mr Agreeable's link and type in a local (Painswick) postcode you get a local map detailing the Open Access land.
If you click on the link below the map you get the restrictions and access rights for the land (as per link below)Posted 8 years ago
