Dear TRF Forum User
Leys Lane is likely to be closed by TRO. The latest amongst several controversial closures with more to come. Enjoy it while you still can. We invite you, your family and friends to join us in a Picnic in the Park, Sunday 1 December 2013
Bring your flasks and sandwiches to enjoy a tranquil ‘Picnic in the Park’. Celebrate all that the Peak District has to offer, before Leys Lane (near the village of Great Longstone) is closed permanently by TRO. Take this opportunity to enhance the cultural heritage of the Peak District by using this historic road. Stop for a roadside picnic to understand and enjoy the special qualities of the National Park.
From 12 noon, we’ll have a small information point on Cherpit Lane at the junction with Leys Lane (Grid Ref: SK 189 728).
Whether you drive, ride or walk, please enjoy a day out in the Peak District on the 1st of December and include Cherpit Lane and Leys Lane in your itinerary ………bring your picnic. We will be there to tell you what we are doing to keep the lanes open and our plans for the future. How Chris Pennell is part of or even is the Architect of a committee of “yes men” and “Committed antis” to ensure we lose our rights.
We are the victims of manipulation and skulduggery by forces within the PDNPA, maybe a case of Gerrymandering or good old fashioned discrimination. Find out more
Remember this…..we have been legally using the lanes longer than any other user group….since early 19th century. The Peaks has gained its prosperity through mechanically propelled vehicles. The very people that have benefitted are now choosing to deny us knowing of course as Landowners and Authority they and their friends ( for now) can still enjoy it.
Make your feelings known, find out more, join in the fight. If the Peak Park get away with it it could be your park next.
NOTE: We recommend that if you ride/drive to Cherpit & Leys Lanes, you do so from west to east, coming off the B6465 (south of Wardlow) at Grid Ref SK 183 728. This will enable a one-way flow, which helps other users.
