Turns out the gate that he used to cross onto the other path has been locked and has barbed wire top and bottom for the last 3 years.

(Spoke to the previous owners last night)

So have the lock and barb been removed, and if so, by whom ?

Then put the lock back on. Now.

Live with that as the hassle. Not militant ramblers, or 23 caravans leaving trails of gas cylinders behind them.

Seems pretty straightforwards then : replace lock after work completed, or replace now outwith working hours.

The only thing is that we'll have made an enemy of a local councillor...

One who's done two things already.

1) Lied to you.

And you're worried about upsetting him? Explain, if it comes to it, that you've been advised to lock gates to protect your land, the environment, prevent criminal activity, encourage use of footpaths and safeguard any livestock. If a councillor wishes to argue with any of those...

And all the nasties that come with it


We have a footpath that runs through every field & in actual fact it should run through the neighbours yard & then back onto ours, but we just allow them to proceed on our side to save having two crossing points.

...but if I ever find out who vandalised the fence with their ****** wirecutters, I'll go round & cut through their tyres & see how they like the extra cost & inconvenience of replacing things unecessarily When you are working to improve paths & access it can be very disheartening to find some people out there who seem to enjoy leaving gates open & fences down, for no other reason than laziness.

Haven't seen anyone with their wirecutters hacking through the side of the neighbours shed yet
