Tiger Traps Installed along Woodtop

In efforts to try to stop illegal use of the path by motor cycles and quad bikes, the Norden Councillors have worked with Norden Area Forum to provide Tiger Traps and Kissing gates both on the path from Roods Lane and at the end close to School Lane. The Councillors will be observing whether this does reduce or eliminate they illegal usage.
The installations are part of a medium-term project which was initiated through the Norden Area Forum and is progressively reducing ease of access for off-road vehicles to local woodland trails and bridleways.  The project came forward as a result of the huge numbers of trials bikes and quads which have been being ridden through the woodland, causing danger to responsible people who hope to enjoy the area for a range of recreational activities such as walking, running, cycling, horse riding and dog walking.
