Byway Closure until further notice

Studdens Lane by way is closed to all horses and vehicles. Water damage has created an enormous hole in the surface which extends across almost the whole width of the byway. ES Rights of Way have added that for the time being it can safely stay open to walkers.

Repairs may not be possible until the summer, given the ground conditions.
