|LDNPA Planned Action
After years of neglect of this bridleway the two southern spurs near Whins Farm have finally
been cleared of over-growing vegetation, we can once more see what we are walking on.
Unfortunately the LDNPA have neglected this route for decades, in 2005 they even
assured the Ramblers Association
that the overhanging vegetation would be removed in 2005, but this like all their
assurances came to nothing.
The over-growing vegetation was only removed with the
threat of legal action to get it removed.
It will probably require legal action to get the rest of the problems resolved,
the surface put in a fit state of repair and the other obstructions removed.
2006: Up the south-eastern spur to the first gate
Back down the western spur to Whins Farm
Walking up the Bridleway towards Floutern Tarn, from the first gate
The Bridleway now gets a bit worse so everyone trespasses on to the adjoining
The bridleway changes number at the Parish
boundary to BW 243008, and heads down in to Mosedale.
