Bridge out in Attenborough Nature Reserve
On my last run along the top edge of Attenborough nature reserve I spotted some new Rights of Way change notices. I’m keeping an eye out for these after the Spring Lane level crossing ones from last year. A quick read and it was just that they were restricting access to the old bridge crossing the waterway near the cricket ground. The restriction was just for horses so I didn’t think too much of it and assumed it was weight related.
When I got to the bridge there was a temproary wooden access restriction there that would definitely halt a horse, but a runner/cyclist could easily nip through.
On yesterday’s evening run the barriers had become for everyone, and there were new notices posted up reenforcing that is was now closed for pedestrians as well
So if you’re running that way before the 3rd September probably worth planning for a longer run or a different route. Hopefully it’s a quick fix as that a handy crossing to make a simple route around Attenborough.
