davnig Posted September 20, 2009 Share Posted September 20, 2009 (edited) Was out doing the Broadmead Brook cache this afternoon and not long after we set off from the road we noticed that a thin wire had been strung across the path and up the hill so you couldn't just walk around, you had to duck under. The electric fence was particularly dodgy as it was thin wire with no markers at all at chest height, would have caught someone unawares quite easily, especially a child just running along not paying attention. It was live too, i checked My question, isn't it illegal for landowners to block off public access in anyway, let alone if it is done in the dangerous way this was. There were some horses one side of the fence so I assume that's what the fence was there for. Is there someone you can send details of such things too so they can have a word with the landowner??? I have emailed the Ramblers association to see of they have any ideas too. If it had been safely marked out so you wouldn't miss it I would prob not be too bothered, just ducked under and carried on but it seemed a bit dangerous the way they have done it.
