In reply to Pat of Battle and Richard Smith’s letter in last week’s Observer, we have walked Battle Great Wood since the 1960’s I can assure everyone, that it does recover its charm.
However, walkers must take their share of the blame for the treacherous condition of the paths.
I enclose a photograph taken earlier this week showing a portion of one of the tracks and its lethal slippery surface.
Not a hoof print or tractor rut in sight!
