New fence and sign, Boldron footpath
New fence and sign, Boldron footpath
The public footpath from Boldron south towards Kilmond Scar leaves the village green via a stile over a stone wall and enters a field. In early 1993, much tree planting was going on in strips adjacent to both this field and the next one to the south. A shelter belt was being established on this strip at the north end of the field, and the fencing had just been put in (mainly using old timber, it has to be admitted). The opportunity was taken to clarify the route of the footpath and ask walkers to refrain from smoking on this land - the property owners were newly married and anticipating children. Obviously it would not be acceptable for growing children to be exposed to the sight of people smoking and that activity appearing to be socially acceptable, nor should they be exposed to smoke carried towards the house by the prevailing SW winds. As a result of more work being carried out, and the trees being well established, this fence was removed during 2009.
