LLRA is continuing with efforts to get the path across Newt Hollow and Hobblers Hole recognised as an official Right of Way. This path leads from an existing footpath over to Whitton’s Park (see map below). However, we have hit a snag in the historic evidence we require and are appealing for help from the Long Leys community.
If you used the Newt Hollow or Hobblers Hole sections of path, prior to 1993, then LLRA would appreciate you getting in touch with us at LLRA@long-leys.org. The sections are marked in yellow (Newt Hollow) and green (Hobblers Hole) on the map below. We do not need any evidence of use after 1993.
In addition if you can recall, prior to 1993, maybe going pond dipping as a child at the wooden staging at Newt Hollow Pond (marked with a yellow X) then also please get in touch.
To use as evidence, we would need to prepare a statement for you, which records the approximate number of times you used the path each year, whether the path access was ever blocked or whether you noticed others using the path at the same time.
If you know someone who may be able to help who is not likely to see this message please do pass it on to them.
Thanks to everyone for their help.
