Environment / GEORGES WOOD ROAD
« Last post by Therock on Today at 09:06:15 am »
Hi, I would just like to know if I am able to walk on residents Grass/hedge/driveway to avoid Mad Fast car/van drivers whilst walking down or up Georges Wood Road.?????
Some of the residents are lovely and smile at you but some of the Miserable pillocks give you dirty looks, especially down the start of the hill on the even numbers . Get a life
not try and take one. Its ONLY GRASS and CONCRETE!

You have to question just what kind of contractual arrangement between the government and the rail company would allow this to happen - clearly a very badly drawn up contract.

This article makes interesting reading:

Effectively, Govia have agreed a maximum fine level of 10 million through until September, which they have paid in advance, so they have absolutely no incentive to fix this mess until then at the earliest!

We added walk 74 yesterday, an easy 3.5 mile loop from St Mary's Church North Mymms starting off through parkland with some amazing trees. Some interesting fungi, flowers and butterflies between points 2 & 4.

Nobby shouldn't hold out too much hope! Apparently, in the next few weeks, the controllers for our service, i.e. GN locals is due to move from Kings Cross to co-locate with the new Thameslink control centre at Three Bridges. After which, disentangling the mess may become akin to leaving the EU!

I looked up yesterday's (Saturday) actual arrivals at BPK:

A sprinkling of daytime cancellations, but an atrocious service for anyone trying to return home from an outing to London from mid-afternoon onwards! It's also abysmal customer care to cancel the last scheduled services.

Last night (Saturday) there were no late trains to London at all. I dropped a friend off at the station to find the 22.35 cancelled. The board said the 23.35 was also cancelled but the 23.05 was on time. My friend returned to the station later to find that the 23.05 had just been cancelled as well. Consequently he had to take a taxi back to London - cost 65. Furthermore, he told me that there was a group of young girls at the station who were in a state of panic as they had also, presumably relied on the 23.05 running. The disgraceful state of the trains is not only costing us money it's putting the safety of youngsters at risk. The papers also tell us that the rail companies would rather incur a fine than incur the cost of training an adequate number of drivers. You have to question just what kind of contractual arrangement between the government and the rail company would allow this to happen - clearly a very badly drawn up contract. The state of the trains has been awful for two years now, and I recall that our MP wrote to Govia Thameslink back in September 2016, but this appears to have had little effect. The next time I see Grayling burbling on the telly, I might throw something at it.

We have just updated walk 2 (of 73) the Camfield Place Loop. The route has been changed slightly, the directions rewritten, a new map produced, and new pictures added. It's a three-mile circular from the car park at The Woodman Wildhill. If you try the walk please add any comments in the box at the end of the directions page.
