Quidenham BR 6: across arable field. The cross-field bridleway is getting persistently cultivated without reinstatement, with public users apparently expected to follow a deviation around the edge of the field instead. The statutory right to plough the surface of a cross-field bridleway, under Highways Act 1980 Section 134, only applies where that cannot reasonably be avoided; it is questionable whether disturbing the bridleway surface here cannot reasonably be avoided. Plus, the correct route needs to be clearly and robustly signposted, to assist persons unfamiliar with the locality to follow the correct route of the bridleway.
