TR2656 : Footpath EE190 to Claypits

taken 4 years ago, near to Staple, Kent, Great Britain

Footpath EE190 to Claypits
Footpath EE190 to Claypits
Footpath EE190 to Twitham Hill and Claypits here breaks away from the headland track to Crixhall Court, and sets a dead-straight cross-field course to Claypits. Ahead is the continuation of Church Lane, a former road giving access to Crixhall Court from Staple village, and now a permissive horse ride. The divergence of the cross-field route to Claypits should begin about 80m further north, but has been defined here to avoid breaking across the arable field to the north. The hedge along the headland is being restored.
Claypits footpath EE190 :: TR2655

A path from opposite the church of St James the Great on The Street, Staple. It passes south-southwest along a track, initially metalled and known as Church Lane, to the junction with footpath EE191 to Buckland Lane and Summerfield, then continues southwest across two arable fields towards Twitham Hill to a junction with public bridleway EE28. It then continues in the same southwesterly direction over further arable fields to Claypits Farm, then following an enclosed path between hedges to emerge on Cave Lane at Claypits opposite the junction with Boyes Lane, Goodnestone. Beyond Church Lane, the path follows an almost direct bearing across arable fields all the way to Claypits. Recorded on the definitive map and statement for Kent as footpath EE190.

The path is well used today, but when surveyed by Goodnestone parish council in 1950 (to inform the first draft definitive map), it was recorded as 'no trace, not used'.
