Footpaths 7 & 8 – Advisory information

Information – Footpaths Holt 7 & 8 crossing the field behind the Midlands Industrial Estate.
The field has been ploughed and re-seeded as the grass quality had become very poor, it would be greatly appreciated if walkers could use the perimeter of the field until the grass has had a chance to establish. A gentle reminder to dog owners to pick up and take home dog faeces as these are highly dangerous to cows (& children!).
The definitive rights of way remain as before but would appreciate your co-operation in the short term. The additional fencing has been removed to allow more grazing for stock.

NB: Footpath map can be found on the Footpaths Page of this website
