Yesterday morning the Forestry Commission closed the entrance to Wendover Woods as the car park was full. This caused chaos on Aston Hill with traffic queuing as far back as the main road on Icknield Way. We were prevented from getting home, as we live on Aston Hill, and had to take a 15 minute detour to get home! Worse still is the highly dangerous situation this traffic jam caused with impatient drivers driving on the wrong side of the road and risking a head on collision from vehicles or cyclists travelling down the hill. Unfortunately this is not the first occasion this has happened as similar situations have occurred previously this year including the last Bank Holiday. The issue has occurred more often over the last few years, ( we have lived on Aston Hill near the entrance to the Woods for the last 18 years ) but with the recent commercialisation of the Woods the situation is becoming too regular and intolerable. It is only a matter of time before there is a nasty accident unless action is taken immediately. Indeed we are concerned there will be a repeat this Saturday given the good weather forecast.
