Nipped up Gun G/SP-013 en route to tonight’s gig in Leicestershire. Found a slight break in the rain and made a dash for the AZ with the HT.
I noticed a couple of drain channels had been dug. The main one going across the path diverted water away from the start of the walk. In this wx I would have expected flooding right across the path here - so a significant improvement.
We don’t have these dog fouling laws up here to same extent you have down there. It’s only an offence “to allow a dog to foul a footpath, local authority grass verge, a local authority pedestrian precinct or any local authority maintained recreation or sports ground.”
I’m a bit nervous about banning things… dogs, bikes, radios, drones, masts, kites and maybe humans can all be banned. Some of the best preserved moorland in the Pennines (I am informed) is in the Army training area and the main thing that is missing is people… Banning is a bit blunt, Education is harder but might be more effective - I would hope…
