BIGGIN HILL; FROM FOOTPATH TO BRIDLEWAY

For over thirty years people have been riding horses and bikes along footpath 275, which runs from Jail Lane, Biggin Hill, in between Foal Farm animal sanctuary and Cherry Lodge golf course, to an area of off road riding called the Strawberry Fields, believing it to be a bridleway. Recently Bromley Council have seen fit to erect barriers at either end thus rendering the path inaccessible to riders and wheelchair users. The only access to our nearest off road riding is now along Biggin Hill's Main Road or through the lanes at Berry's Green. The lanes are carrying an ever increasing amount of traffic; with the introduction of the LEZ the amount of lorries using back roads is ever increasing, and possibly endangering riders lives. Please sign our petition to attempt to change the status of the footpath to bridleway!For a map of the bridleway check this link; http://www.streetmap.co.uk/newmap.srfx=543250&y=158750&z=110&sv=543250,1587
