Tregonning/Tresowes Hill Modification Order WCA541 Submitted by: bhsaccesscornwall 02 03 2018 14:23
This application was submitted in 2006 by Breage & Germoe Bridleways Association after horses riders were blocked from accessing the hill.

The SoS have just directed CC to determine the Order within 6 months.

St Leven Byway 6 Submitted by: bhsaccesscornwall 28 02 2018 10:50
This Byway on the Penrose estate near Loe Bar is now closed owing to landslip in the storms. Half of it has fallen down the cliff. This is such a shame as the National Trust only 2 years ago provided a new bridleway connection through to Helston to replace another section of Byway 6 that had fallen into the sea many years ago. The National Trust is aiming to provide a replacement route and is liaising with the British Horse Society over this new provision.

Old Lane off Gypsy Lane, Helston Submitted by: bhsaccesscornwall 03 02 2014 17:38
This old lane (213/D on our maps) - is a well used unrecorded right of way - is being diverted by the landowner at the Gypsy Lane end onto a newly built section of bridleway which the landowner is going to dedicate as definitive bridleway. We are also consulting with other landowner to get the whole of the remainder of the track dedicated as bridleway> The landowner has fully consulted bhsaccesscornwall, local riders and Cornwall Council. The new path will be more convenient away for the houses.

This has been cleared by Ramblers REACT project with Cornwall Council. However most riders consider the road crossing too dangerous
