  1. I regularly walk around the Pex Hill area and have done so for most of my life as a resident of Rainhill for seventy years.
    The farmer with agricultural land adjacent to Pex Hill has deliberately blocked a pathway to the hill on the Cronton side not far from the nearest road i.e. The Roundabout.
    He has deliberately placed a number of felled trees across the pathway. The pathway was one of a number of entrances which the Council provided some yeas as part of the considerable work undertaken to improve access and the general area around the Hill.
    He has also ploughed paths which give access to the Hill which I think my be rights of way but I need to check this.
    Can you please advise if he is within his rights to take this action which is ignorant and deliberately selfish.

    1. Hi David,
      I have redirected your comments to Vitti Osborne, Clerk to the Parish Council. I’m glad you’ve raised the issue because it has become a problem for many walkers and dog walkers. But it needed to be raised by someone who has used these pathways for more than 20 years and personally I haven’t. I’m part of Cronton Pathways Walks for Health and these restrictions are limiting the walk routes we can take. In addition to this where we should be able to walk, e.g. at the exit onto Norlands Lane down from Pex Hill, the footpath is so churned up by tractor ruts that it is impassable. It should be reinstated by the farmer within 14 days but I don’t hold out much hope.
      I hope you are successful in your query.
