Vehicles on Bridleways

May 09th 2023

We would like to remind everyone that under Section 34 of the Road Traffic Act 1988 it is a criminal offence to drive a mechanically propelled vehicle without lawful authority over any footpath, bridleway or restricted byway.  We are aware that a number of cars are currently parking on both the entrance to Battery Mill Lane and down the end of The Green Lane, both of which are bridleways as shown by a blue dotted line on the map below (Battery Mill 111/5/1 and The Green Lane 111/8/1- see map below).

Please be aware that not only is this illegal, it is also extremely inconsiderate to the residents that live down the lanes as it can block their access, and also impacts on the road surface of a lane that is not covered by Highways maintenance.

For anyone visiting Battery Mill Play park by vehicle please ensure that you use the Parish Council cark park by Green Lane Park opposite the Church and walk over the bridge using the virtual footway.
