The paths are open   :)    we had a lovely walk round this afternoon   :D

Many thanks to all involved, especially MikeL, and of course a special thank you to the landowners who have fenced and marked the pathways.

Happy walking everyone.


You are wrong. The footpaths are NOT open yet.
You were mistaken.

Just had a lovely early morning walk along all the Leach Fields paths. Met a really nice couple who rent some of the land for their animals - all of them rescued and nursed back to health. Also met a nice guy who was putting the finishing touches to the fences and told us the paths were open and hoped we would enjoy using them. And met two pals walking the Leach Fields paths again with their dogs. All good. Some pictures of some of the rescued pigs and the paths below.

Had my first proper walk round these paths today and they have NOT all been reinstated.

As you go in from Bluebridge, you used to be able to turn immediately right and drop down and walk along the brook, where you would eventually pick up the other paths.

Could someone please explain this?

Hi Saffie,  that path was there when we tried it (as you can see from this picture). You just walk in from Bluebridge as before, go straight on and turn right by the small shed.

We went and had another look this morning, the path to that path used to cut right across where the pigs are.  I got confused looking at it from the other side of the brook yesterday.  So it looks like you might still be able to get to it ut from a different place.

At last the landowner has cut back the brambles and long grass, the paths are now walkable.  The pigs have gone, there are just two horses in the fields.  Please, please walk these paths, we need to keep them open.
