............ on the Hatton Path, previously reported by Yvonne, is the blocking of the horse gate by a larger gate put there by the local farmer to stop his sheep wandering off to Hatton city centre. Ewe know what sheep are like - always looking for baa-gains.
The previous gate has been stolen, and that fitted the gap and was hinged to the horse gate whereas this one is jammed in the fencing at one end and tied with string at the other, so not operable by horse riders.
The adjacent kissing gate is quite unsuitable for cyclists, not being big enough to permit the passage of tandems, trikes, bike trailers or wheelchairs and it is even a struggle to get a normal bike through it.
We will be taking these problems back to SDCC.
