Shortly after my visit with the Ramblers to the North York Moors on 18 July I reported the wobbly, dangerous stile at Fylingthorpe (grid reference NZ 945048).
On 15 August. it was fixed. Bernie McLinden, the North York Moors National Park Authority senior ranger (coast), has written: ‘Couldn’t get agreement for a gate but have repaired the stile. Given the nature of the gap with stone walls and stone floor we had to install something a little different to the usual stile—but I think it works well.’ Although he had been away that did not hold things up, and the stile was built by his colleague, Martyn Williams.
It looks wonderful; I can’t wait to go back and use it. And what a speedy response—I doubt many authorities would fix a stile within a month.
Thanks Bernie and Martyn!
