A fine gate!


A fine gate!
But as much use as the department that that installed it. It stops mobility scooters though, damn .em.. Motorbikes go free.

Beaurocracy can be very mean Ron. Probably spelled wrong.

Yes, that really looks like Wigan.

Ron you should complain to the department that that installed it.

Where is that Ron ?

How would you prevent motorcycle access without preventing mobility scooters, in fact would you really want to take a scooter along there?

I presume there was fencing up to the gate at some time? If so was it took down or knocked down?

If there's a will there will be a way for sure.

Nice to know our Council Tax is being put to good use.

PeterP. There was no fence just an open path until early this year . Motor cycles are not supposed to be on the path before the gate

This is an optical illusion, if you look very carefully to the right of the post you can see the sun reflecting off the reinforced Perspex that covers the apparent gap, and the shadows of the bushes too.
