22 November 2018Cows gone for the Winter today. Also see below : fence cut again.

This morning the remaining 83 cows were removed from the grazing fields. They were gathered in the Low Water end field, which has meant that there is a fair amount of mud around there for a while. Ian M. has cleared the metalled path of most the mud etc. this afternoon.

The fence next to the field gate, near the stile from the Sledging Field into the area next to Whatcombe Farm, which featured in the news item of 23rd March earlier this year has been cut again. (See below:View All Stories)

Why?

Probably because the ground under the gate is muddy, and somebody with hefty wirecutters is not wearing suitable footwear. Of course this gate does not lie on a public footpath, so it should not be used by walkers; there is no excuse for this action. This area is not within the SOSWhatcombe Fields property and should be respected as private land. We will to have to repair it yet again.

The way through the fence is via the wooden kissing gate nearer the river. The situation will probably change when the Sustrans cyclepath is completed through this area of the grazing fields.
