A belated update on the Rounden Wood bridleway. First to recap: the new track put in by the Bruderhof for the purpose of timber extraction was surfaced with hardcore which contained a certain amount of contamination with articles (eg broken glass). This new track partly overlapped the bridleway and there was a concern that the surface as a result was not suitable for horses (nor cyclists).
I am pleased to say that at the beginning of April the affected part of the bridleway was topped – at the Bruderhof’s expense – with a good layer of crushed stone which looks a lot more suitable.
We are grateful that this has now been sorted out, and thanks are also due to the East Sussex Rights of Way team for their persistence in following up this issue.
