Those who pay attention to this sort of thing may have noticed that I've not been contributing towards the Rambling category very often in recent times; and the reason for this is that, instead of walking around the area, I've been getting out and about on my trike, Trixie.
This morning, however, having heard some firework, last night, I decided to climb to the top of the hill to see if I could find the remains of the jubilee beacon which I had presumed was associated with the aforementioned fireworks.
In the event, I didn't find what I had been looking for. However, once again, I was reminded of the lack of consideration some mountain-bikers show from time to time. For example, on all three of the footpaths I walked along, there was evidence of tyre tracks. Furthermore, as illustrated in the following photographs, someone - presumably, bikers - had taken steps to ignore the clearly-marked signs.
The actual footpath (prohibited to cyclists) is on the right. However, someone - presumably bikers - has cut a track through the hedge on the left to join up with the original footpath about the length of a cricket pitch along from where it starts. I know I've asked the question before; but, is it any wonder bikers are held in such contempt by many of the local population?
