  • Latest News!
  • Public Concern Once again we have been approached by members of the public concerned about the state of paths used jointly both by horses and pedestrians. The concern is regarding the horse droppings which are left on the paths. The particular path this time being brought to our attention is the one between Albury Derive and Wellbank View behind the community school in Norden.Please can we ask anyone, who's horse defecates when on these sort of cut throughs, if they could consider returning as soon as it is practicable to push the droppings into the side. This way we can help pedestrians not to be inconvenienced, demonstrate to them that we are considerate, and both parties can  continue to enjoy ...

  • Woodtop Upgrade Great News. Both the Heywood and Township Committees have agreed that there is sufficient evidence for the upgrade for Woodtop from a footpath to bridlepath. It is now in the hands of the legal department so hopefully notifications will soon be posted along the route giving 28 days for any objections to be made. Keep watching this space for progress.

  • Concerns from Local Norden Residents We have received the following e-mail from a concerned resident in Norden. Please can we encourage all horse riders in the community to act in a responsible and considerate way for other path users.If you are riding through such confined spaces when your horse passes its droppings please either dismount and kick them to one side or if you can not please return after your ride to move them to one side."I'm writing to complain about the mess left behind by horse riders. I understand the public footpath connecting Durnford close and heap road has been changed to a bridle path. The horse riders are showing no consideration for the local residents. Today I witnessed a ...

  • Yet More problems at Black Dads Unfortunately no photograph of the three riders riding through Black Dads today 28th August 2015 (about 10.40) were taken so the culprits can not be identified.The riders rode across the garden on the Bridlepath from Nabbs Wife to Ashworth Valley. Instead of remaining in single file on the stoned path they chose instead to ride on the grass with disastrous affect of causing hoof marks and indentation in the lawn (see attached photo)When tackled by the occupant of Black Dads they stated the path is not wide enough (which is untrue if you rode along it in single file). In addition they retorted "get a life". Such behaviour does nothing to encourage land owners and other users ...
