Major Road Schemes
A30 to St Austell LinkSubmitted by: bhsaccesscornwall 02 03 2018 16:08
The link from the A30 to St Austell is now at advanced planning stage. The route from Victoria passes between Goss Moor and Roche and down to Stenalees. The new road will result in the current route through Bugle and Stenalees being downgraded for local traffic only. This is good news for riders. Also a new multiuser trail is planned alongside the new road.

Tregonning/Tresowes Hill Modification Order WCA541Submitted 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. They have now applied to the Secretary of State to give Direction to Cornwall Council to determine the Order in reasonable timescale. The SoS have just directed CC to determine the Order within 6 months.

Solomon's Lane, Zelah Modification Order WCA586Submitted by: bhsaccesscornwall 01 03 2018 12:23
This Modification Order Application was submitted in 2013 jointly by the BHS and the Ramblers after use of the old lane had been deliberately blocked by landowner. In 2016 we asked the Secretary of State to give Direction to Cornwall Council to determine the Order in reasonable timescale. The SoS directed CC to determine the Order within 12 months. CC duly processed the Order and MADE it in March 2017. Needless to say thee were objections and CC is still dealing with these. We hope it will not need to go to Public Inquiry.

Morval Bridleway 8Submitted by: bhsaccesscornwall 01 03 2018 11:25
Cornwall Council Enforcement Team have recently opened this bridleway through Widlake Wood from Colvase Farm.

St Leven Byway 6Submitted 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.

Bridleway 7 St Martin-by-LooeSubmitted by: bhsaccesscornwall 28 02 2018 10:48
Good news! This bridleway has at last been repaired by Cornwall Council and greatly improved where a small river is crossed. It has been closed for at least four years.

Bridleway Madron 51Submitted by: bhsaccesscornwall 27 02 2018 12:35
This old bridleway lane from Trezelah was cleared early last year by Cornwall Council after being completely over grown and blocked for many years. However after the Council opened it and connected through to bridleway Madron 52 the landowner i now disputing the Right of Way and obstructing the path. Cornwall Council are trying to resolve the issue.

Bridleway 81 St HilarySubmitted by: bhsaccesscornwall 27 02 2018 12:34
Cornwall Council still have not processed the diversion to move the definitive route to the new route that was agreed with the landowners. Apparently there is an old mine shaft on or near the path that is causing concern. They have a plan either to re-enforce or move the path but despite promises nothing has been done 4 years since the alleged problem was discovered yet the path is in everyday use.

Foot path 40 LudgvanSubmitted by: bhsaccesscornwall 27 02 2018 12:33
Foot path 40 Ludgvan from Collorian to county road at Tregellast. This old lane footpath always used to be ridden until the parish council=n stopped riders by erecting a barrier. We now have got Cornwall Council to remove the barrier as it was illegal. However the path does need clearing to make it passable by horse. Documentary evidence shows that this old lane was a road and should now be a Restricted Byway.

Byway/Byway 28 PaulSubmitted by: bhsaccesscornwall 27 02 2018 12:33
This path runs from Sheffield past Sheffield Quarry to connect with the bridleway to Kerris. It has been cleared by Ramblers REACT project with Cornwall Council but the connecting section is not suitable for use by horse and cannot be made so owing to the terrain and bog.

Bridleway 31 PaulSubmitted by: bhsaccesscornwall 27 02 2018 12:32
Until recently this bridleway was completely overgrown and blocked. It runs from the county road through Chyenhal past Ennis Farm and connecting to the footpath lane back past Chyenhal Moor. It was cleared by the Ramblers REACT project with Cornwall Council. It still requires further improvement.

Bridleway Through Castle-an-Dinas QuarrySubmitted by: bhsaccesscornwall 24 02 2018 16:02
This bridleway has now been officially diverted to avoid the quarry site itself. The quarry provided an alternative route for riders a few years ago but only recently was the diversion order completed to make this route permanent and legal.

Cabilla Manor Bridleway - Cardinham 21Submitted by: bhsaccesscornwall 15 02 2018 15:55
This bridleway was reopened in Spring 2027 after being closed for 4 years after being washed away for a second time. We understand proper drainage has now been installed to take water off the path.

DANGEROUS BOG on Bridleway 46 StithiansSubmitted by: bhsaccesscornwall 27 02 2014 15:23
I have been informed that Bridleway Number 46 from Tresvern to Treskewisis VERY DANGEROUS to attempt to walk or ride.There are several very deep person and horse swallowing bogs. Cornwall Council are aware and will be closing it, if they have not done so already.

Botrea Bridleway - Sancreed 26Submitted by: bhsaccesscornwall 06 02 2014 12:30
You may have noticed that the top end had now been Tarmaced. The BHS reluctantly agreed after consultation from Cornwall Council. Previous extensive repairs with non sealed surface had been washed away. Understandably the landowner was not prepared to spend more money on repairs that do not last. We agreed with CC a suitable non slip horse friendly finish. However the surface that CC specified does not meet that expectation. We are in discussions with CC over the issue.

Polhigy Moor, by Stithians LakeSubmitted by: bhsaccesscornwall 03 02 2014 17:53
The track across this common has always been ridden but earlier this year the entrance was deliberately blocked to riders. The obstruction has been removed but there is still some very localised opposition to it being use by horses. It is the view of the British Horse Society that there is an unrecorded right of way for horses over the common. The BHS does though ask riders to avoid using the route if very muddy.

National Trust P4C Project at PenroseSubmitted by: bhsaccesscornwall 03 02 2014 17:45
The National Trust Paths for Communities (P4C)Project at Penrose is nearing Completion and will provide 10 miles of new definitive bridleway including a bridleway link from Penrose to Porthleven to bypass the byway that was washed into the sea. The BHS is pleased to have been able to work with the National Trust in looking at some detail of the implementation.

Old Lane off Gypsy Lane, HelstonSubmitted 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.

Asset SurveySubmitted by: bhsaccesscornwall 03 02 2014 17:18
Cornwall Council in its wisdom has recruited new inspectors to inspect all environmental assets including Open Spaces and Rights of Way. All rights of Way are being inspected - not a trivial job. BUT the inspections will not be as thorough as required - Importantly Health and Safety issues will be fixed BUT low branches and side growth are not being considered as an issue requiring any priority attention. See http://www.bhsaccesscornwall.org.uk/AssetSurvey.pdf We are not yet confident of exactly what this survey will deliver for horse riders.

Bridleway Clearance
Side and Top Growth ClearanceSubmitted by: bhsaccesscornwall 03 02 2014 17:06
We all know what a serious safety hazard grown in bridleways present to riders. Strictly the liability for clearance of growth from hedges and above is the responsibility of the land owner. Cornwall Council now have a policy relying on landowners to do such clearance BUT they have no mechanisms in place for enforcing landowners to do such clearance. Further they are relying on riders to inform the Council of such problems. We are continuing to press the Council on this issue as we consider such problems to be a Health ans Safety Issue. PLEASE DO REPORT SUCH PROBLEMS TO US AND TO THE COUNCIL.

St Euny Well P4C ProjectSubmitted by: bhsaccesscornwall 06 11 2013 16:54
As reported previously West Penwith Bridleways Association together with the British Horse Society has obtained grant funding (£21k) via the Natural England Paths for Communities scheme to complete the bridleway link from Chapel Carn Brea to Brane and to fund a major path restoration of over the troublesome bog on the western side of well. Also owing to the generosity of an adjacent landowner we have been able to build an entirely new path to bypass the well and reach the byway at Brane.
This has been a significant construction project which is now reaching conclusion. Our contractor advises us that the path requires to settle and compact before it is used by horses. We are really grateful to the landowners who have made this project possible.

National Trust new Bridleways at PenroseSubmitted by: bhsaccesscornwall 30 07 2013 19:26
STOP PRESS - The National Trust's grant application to the Paths for Communities initiative for 10 miles of new bridleways at Penrose/Loe Pool HAS BEEN SUCCESSFUL. The BHS has been working with the NT to develop these plans. It will provide a fantastic bridleway network around the pool with connections to all local communities.

Trebuddannon BridlewaysSubmitted by: bhsaccesscornwall 02 07 2013 16:18
This BW loop near St Columb Major has been the source of complaints for many years. We at last have had chance to survey this bridleway ourselves and produce a full report. Issues include a 4 foot wide bridge gated at both ends, hidden electric fence wire along a long section of the bridleway, other obstructions on the definitive line and very awkward gates. The bridge was seemingly installed by CC 10 years ago yet it is an illegal and dangerous obstruction on a bridleway. It should be 5 foot wide and with kick boards. CC now have this report and we are awaiting their plan of action.

Cabilla Manor Bridleway UpdateSubmitted by: bhsaccesscornwall 20 05 2013 11:49
One casualty of the winter flooding was Cardinham Bridleway 21 past Cabilla Manor that last year Cornwall Council spent 23,000 renovating. All the renovations were washed away and the bridleway is once again unusable. Cornwall Council have informed us that the bridleway will be repaired and the new work done will be to a much better specification than the original restoration. However the schedule depends upon available funds for flood damage repair which will be reviewed at the end of the Summer.

Cardinham Woods - 1SW ProjectSubmitted by: bhsaccesscornwall 20 05 2013 11:42
New cycle trails have been now been completed under the 1SW cycle project. The new trails share some stretches with walkers and horses, but the extreme sections (all new paths) are dedicated to cyclists and one way (only a metre wide). However riders have gained out of this project as they are now an accepted as users of the forest tracks and there are share with care signs with pedestrians, cyclist and horses pictured. There is however an 8 foot high cycle trail gantry sign under which horse riders have to go and possibly duck! Also none of the definitive bridleways in the woods are signed.

Balnoon TrackSubmitted by: bhsaccesscornwall 20 05 2013 11:03
A MAJOR STEP FORWARD - Cornwall Council Commons Officer has CONFIRMED that the track (from Balnoon to Halsetown) past the caravan and the land on which they have sited their caravan is common land subject to section 193(1) of the Law of Property Act 1925 and that walkers and horse riders do therefore have right of access past their property (and also in fact on the land underneath their caravan. We are now asking Cornwall Council to enforce this. (The owner of the caravan challenges riders and tries to stop them using the track and often abusively.)

Commons Re-Registered in St JustSubmitted by: bhsaccesscornwall 20 05 2013 11:02
Three Commons near St Just have been reinstated onto the register as a result of an application under the 2006 Commons Act by Ian Cook (of Save Penwith Moors). Part of one of these commons Chun West was in the old urban district of St Just. As a result the whole of that common is now also a Section 15 common subject to s193 of Law and Property Act, WHICH GIVES RIDERS RIGHT OF ACCESS. Riders already can access much of this common but this now gives access to horse riders by right.

Dedication of BridlewaysSubmitted by: bhsaccesscornwall 16 05 2013 15:09
The process of Express Dedication at Common Law (EDCL) has now been accepted by Cornwall Council as a valid way of adding Rights of Way to the Definitive Map. All that is necessary is for a willing landowner to sign a simple Deed of Dedication and for users to use the path. Cornwall Council then are obliged to add the path to the definitive map. No other Orders are necessary.

The Goat TrackSubmitted by: Harryette 17 02 2013 21:37
This track is still unrepaired. Riding around Newquay is badly disrupted as a result of this and the situation at Colan makes things worse. In another month's time we will be excluded from the beach for six months so then there will be only Priory Road track as off road riding. However getting there now means you cannot doa circular route without major roads being involved, and here comes the season!

After 70 years of free access to the woods a Mr Charlie Hoblyn has taken over ownership. A Modification Order Application was put in 7 years ago and now, because Mr Hoblyn has said he does not want riders in the woods, we are forming a campaign group to try and raise the profile of this issue. We have support from local Councillors who have asked Cornwall Council to deal with the DMMO as soon as possible.

Cabilla Manor BridlewaySubmitted by: bhsaccesscornwall 11 11 2012 16:18
Earlier this year this Bridleway (Cardinham 21)was 'refurbished' by Cornwall Council at an extortionate cost of 23K for 120 metres. With illegal and unusable horse stile, nasty gate, and hoof cutting surface. We have got the Horse Stile removed but the surface issue remains. Another nearby bridleway from Millpool has been done to a very high standard with posh new gates - but it goes no where except onto impassable overgrown moor. We are still asking more questions off Cornwall Council - see item on main News Page

Turbine IncidentsSubmitted by: bhsaccesscornwall 03 02 2013 12:36
Many of such incidents do go unreported but with the seemingly uncontrolled proliferation of turbines, we do fear for the safety of riders and horses. It is therefore essential that all incidents are recorded else turbines will not be seen as a safety issue.
Please do report all riding accidents (or potentially serious incidents)on
www.horseaccidents.org.uk and/or to
