Do you enjoy walking in these woods, appreciating the flora and fauna, rural space, beauty and peace? If so………………………
Did you Know that there are about 10 kms of paths in these Woods that were suddenly closed off to the Public in 2010 when the land had a change of ownership?
Did you Know that because the many paths had been walked by generations over many years, local people decided to apply to Cumbria County Council to put the paths on the Definitive Map and so to officially make them Public Footpaths?
Did you Know that the application to do so was actually approved by Cumbria County Council in January 2017 and that the new landowner appealed 3 times against this decision - including to the Supreme Court - BUT failed?
Did you Know that Cumbria County Council now wants to know about support from people who have an interest in walking these paths for their enjoyment, and have put up a notice asking for comments to be submitted to them?
Did you Know that YOU can easily do this by sending a brief statement of your support for Definitive Map Modification Order 1 2021, expressing your wish to walk the network of paths in future for the benefit of yourself and the Community?
YOU can do this by emailing CCC at: email@example.com or write to The Countryside Access Team, The Parkhouse Building, Kingmoor Business Park, Carlisle CA6 4SJ, with your words of support, quoting ref 5.2.320 DMMO 1 2021.
The deadline for doing this isFriday 14 May 2021.
The more people who do this, the better chance we have of finally getting the paths reopened so that everyone can use and enjoy them again.
Please help! Your support is important and much appreciated.
WALKS ARE BACK
Car sharing is now possible but it looks like our first coach walk will now be 25th July
I hope that will be the case but we'll have to wait and see.
If anyone wants to lead a walk
let Ian Rowley (Walks Secretary) know
If any drivers are willing to car share, please let me know
