Thanks to the efforts of Turville residents who lobbied Buckinghamshire County Council, the highway authority, there is now a gate replacing the unlawful ‘stile‘ on Hambleden footpath 50.
There are also gates in the gaps on Hambleden footpath 49.
These are pleasant wooden gates (so much nicer than the metal ones supplied by the county council). However, we still do not know whether the owners have consent, under section 147 of the Highways Act 1980, for these structures on the paths. The county council is investigating.
