The fence obstruction across Colne Valley Footpath 102 had been there so long it had been waymarked!
Alas, this quirky bit of countryside furniture is no more. The obstruction has been removed and replaced with an easy to use gate.
It has taken a stream of emails and threats of notices to shift Kirklees into action but act they have. Thank you.
This path seems to suffer a lot of abuse. The new gate is but a few metres away from the infamous ladder stile which took a similar level of voluntary effort to spur the authorities into action.
The bull is also on this path in the next field. So do shut the gate if it’s not breathing down your neck 🙂
