Halecombe  Path Diversion - The route shown was for  a  permanent 
diversion.   The Clerk had contacted the  Bridleways  Association 
concerning the suggestion that there was to be a bridleway  round 
the  quarry, sympathy was expressed with the idea but  this  plan 
did not show it.
It was agreed to write to SCC saying that the PC wanted:
1) A circular path round the quarry.
2)  A path not at the base of he banking where it  became  filled 
with rubble and was difficult to negotiate but one one top of the 
banking.
3)  The  same access rights to all the banking as  are  currently 
enjoyed on the northern banks.
4) Further access points to the banking.
5) A bridleway and a footpath on the banking.
Query  the  necessity  for this diversion  until  Rookery  Farm's 
future was decided.                                       (CLERK)
Copies  of the letter will be sent to Wimpey  Hobbs,  Bridleways,

On the subject of footpaths attention  was drawn to the fact that 
a  sign  and  stile were needed on 8/32  where  the  path  leaves 
Blackers Lane.                                            (CLERK)
