Hi. Interesting about your story on the footpath to Camber. Went for a walk the other day along the footpath at Leasom Lane. When we crossed the field we found the way blocked by white tape across the approach to the gate. See image. Does anyone know if there is any reason for this? Shaun R
[Editor’s note: At this time of the year, with lambing still under way, this could be a farming response to dog walkers not keeping their dogs under control and causing injury or death among the sheep and baby lambs. But it is also very clearly, as your photo shows, a public footpath.
In the Lake District which I have often visited, and on the North Yorkshire Moors where I once lived, farmers and indeed other authorities put up signs during lambing saying “Keep your dogs under control as you could be prosecuted and fined”]
