All areas around The Hollies - point E are vexing, I guess the owners are trying to mislead walkers, as the footpath appears blocked, and it is very confusing to try to circumnavigate around.John Couzens - 2009-07-02
at point "e" it became very unclear where to go. we ended up in someones back garden crossing fields to find a non existant lane. we retraced our steps more than once and eventually found a sign saying that the lane was a private road and not a footpath. started arguing and gave up and went home.stu - 2008-11-02
If pub car park is full don't park in front of shops. They will let you know it is a private forecourt for shoppers (including Sundays).Mike Kohnstamm - 2007-05-06
