History and Highways

Comment 25th August 2010

All these old Highways and or BYWAYS that have been closed to vehicles, in many cases this is MADNESS the history of past travellers and Drovers that used these tracks and Byways is amazing and most  folk whether they be Ramblers, Horse riders, Cyclists, Motorcyclists and 4X4 Drivers do take intrest and appreciate these routes. Since the MASS of Tracks / Byways that have been closed to many, Predominately 4wheeled vehicles. Not only have WE the 4X4 Owner/Drivers lost out . But for the fact that 4x4s the vehicles and the various Groups/Clubs that drive these vehicles can not clear back overgrown foliage and repair any damage to surfaces as they, believe it or not are known to do. " Tread Lightly"…… " Glass"…….. " Crag" and many more. So the Ramblersand Horse Riders of this beautiful country are losing out as well.

The Majority of 4×4 Drivers when coming across Walkers and Horses STOP , CUT their ENGINES and  " HOPEFULLY " get a good reception from the on coming Walkers and Riders…….. BUT NOT ALWAYS.

The Govenment and councils if they took the time to find out could get so much HELP from all the 4×4 Clubs and Groups that the whole nation would benefit from More Open Countryside and LESS LOST HISTORY.

Yes there is a MINORITY of Persons that don't take note of the Code of Conduct ….. BUT They can be DEALT WITH.

LETS OPEN UP AND APPRECIATE the WHOLE of THE U.K.

Why does this matter?

As Mentioned above …….. THE HISTORY, THE BEAUTY and ACCESS  MUST NOT BE LOST.

Also in times of Emergency, Access along these old routes may be useful to help people…….. Transport them and or supplies by 4×4 e.g Main Highways may be blocked by flooding or deep snow and the shortest and possibly quickest route could be along THAT OLD BYWAY
