As is well known, Spring is the growing season. Unfortunately for walkers,
growth is not restricted to those nice flowers in your garden, but also includes
rampant growth of brambles and nettles across public rights of way. In Dereham,
two paths are particularly prone to this - Restricted Byways 30 and 31. These
carry the legal right for horse and carriage drivers to use them between
Neatherd Moor and Northall Green, crossing Swanton Road part way, but at their
best, they are currently suitable only for walkers, cyclists and horse riders.
Even those users can find their way blocked by nettle and bramble growth.
To tackle this before the route becomes impassable, Dereham Walkers are Welcome
and The Ramblers
together cut the paths on 3 May.
The picture show Peter James using The Ramblers’ heavy duty brush cutter to good
effect. Try the paths for yourself - and let us know of any potential blockages
on these or any other paths.
