Boggard Lane Bridleway – Oughtibridge

Quick update from SCC ROW Team on a tempory bridleway closure
A hole appeared a couple of days ago in the middle of the Boggard Lane Bridleway near Oughtibridge. It has been caused by badgers tunnelling under the Bridleway. We have made the hole safe and are working with Natural England to get an emergency license to work immediately above the sett during the badgers’ breeding season so that we can re-inforce the whole Bridleway surface in this area.
We have also decided that we need to shut the Bridleway to riders and cyclists on safety grounds. I am hopeful that the route can be open and safe again by the end of next week (Friday 25 May). I will be back in contact once the route is safe to ride along again.
