Was going to activate GW/SW-008 today. I drove up the access road to the recommended parking place but just outside Trefil (SO119131) I came up to a big yellow gate. The gate was locked open but there was a notice by it to the effect that the road and bridle way were private, the gate would be closed between 1700 and 0800 and at weekends and that any unauthorised vehicle could be removed and confiscated by the police. The sign had both the crest of Blaenau Gwent and the police and looks very new (just checked Google street view and its not therebut that was two years ago).
Now I’m not sure that the police have the powers of confiscation vehicles in these curcumstances but I wasn’t prepared to argue that point of law with them and as it was raining and blowing I thought that the extra walk was not worth it.
Do you have to use a regional modifier on the internet?
