More progress on the Moor

Following up on signs of work I saw in the distance on Tuesday, I went along to Avon Riding School for the Disabled opposite the Blaise Estate car park on Thursday to see what was going on. Apparently the riding school has leased the moor and has built a track onto it, together with a new gate. This means that it is now possible to get off the moor via the path leading to Corbet Close. That is not particularly helpful for the Wild West route in itself, but it does mean that the moor is likely to be cared for. Nick the manager was out digging up Ragwort, (Senecio jacobaea), which is poisonous to horses, when I visited. When this has been done, the fields will be mown for hay, which ought to improve access.
