Says Andy Smith The sign that you refer to is located part way along a bridleway but this is because this is the point at which the bridleway enters the land we manage at Broxhead Common.

The sign is visible only from one side because if you are travelling in the other direction (and therefore leaving Broxhead Common), the path user does not need to see entrance signage for the site.

The sign is not, in my view, overly close to the bridleway.

The team took care to position it close to the edge of the woodland to the east of the path so that it was not visually or physically intrusive.

I am not aware that of any gates on the land we lease at Broxhead Common (although there are gates on other parts of the bridleway, on land for which HCC does not have any responsibility). We sought, and gained, permission from Natural England before installing all six new entrance signage at Broxhead Common.
