Desire lines given surfaces

An “official” gap in the hedge

As a further improvement to the Strawberry Field, selected gaps through the hedgerow between the Field and Bluebell Road have been given a hardcore surface. This is a great improvement on the mud that is often to be found there. They follow existing desire lines, and so presumably are gaps people will want to use. Hopefully they will become the access points, and there will be no further forcing of gaps in the hedgerow.

The gaps offer a way to join the Strawberry Field Track and by-pass the cycleway and the noise of the Bluebell Road traffic.
