When was the lane closed off, walked past today I had forgotten it had been fenced. Any ideas?

Walked down here hundreds of times when I worked at Plessey's.. It is still fenced off now, checked it yesterday. I don't know if it was legally done???

Always thought it was and still a public right of way.

Little by little the town as I and many others know it is disappearing.
