Hazard to navigation, Middlehope Burn
Hazard to navigation, Middlehope Burn
Canoeists always see sheep fences as potentially fatal hazards to navigation, even when there is little chance of any boating on a particular watercourse, so this one set my teeth on edge immediately. Pigwire is particularly nasty as you don't see it until really close, though at least in this case the old telegraph pole supporting it would be visible from some distance. It looks in good condition, with its climbing steps still in place so one is left wondering why it is not still fulfilling its original purpose.
