Peak District Green Lanes Alliance and destruction of bridleways

Post  PaulL on Wed Oct 03, 2012 11:48 pm

I am asking for your help in getting 4x4s, trail and quad bikes banned from Long Causeway and The Roych. Long Causeway links Redmires in Sheffield with Hathersage and Outseats on the edge of the Peak Park and it crosses Stanage Edge in the process. The Roych is part of the Pennine Bridleway near Chinley. Both are heavily used by off-road vehicles and they are being destroyed in the process.

The Peak Park Authority is trying to ban vehicles from both these wonderful high level trails. But they need help. They are obliged to run public consultations about their proposed bans and we know that the off-roading organisations are getting thousands of motor bike riders from all over the country to take part in the consultation and oppose both exclusion orders.
So we need as many people as possible who care about the Peak District National Park to take part in the consultation and say that they support the the permanent exclusion of all types of off-road vehicle from these two routes.

All you need do is send two emails - one for Long Causeway and one for The Roych.
The Long Causeway email should go to long.causeway at
The Roych email should go to roych at

Full details of the consultations are at [Only admins are allowed to see this link] They close on 2 November.

When you send your emails please say why you support a total ban on vehicles: eg, danger to walkers and horse riders, damage to ancient byway, scar on the landscape of the national park, destroying the natural beauty and tranquility of the area and the national park, etc etc. BUT PLEASE USE YOUR OWN WORDS

Please forward this email to any friends and contacts whom you think will want to help. This is a national consultation so it doesn't matter where people live.

If you would like to, you can also download a membership form to join the Peak District Green Lanes Alliance from [Only admins are allowed to see this link]

Thank you for your help

Thanks for bringing this to the Groups attention Paul. There was a programme on BBC4 this week all about it, and it was very thought provoking.
