Have your say

The Peak District National Park has hit back at the Trail Riders Fellowship who last week questioned their motives over excluding four-by-fours and trail bikes on green lanes in High Peak.

Chapel Gate, a bridleway south west of Edale, and the Roych, a dirt track near Chinley, will both be subject to full traffic regulation orders later this month.

As reported, the fellowship questioned the allegiances of the chairman of the committee, Christopher Pennell, who ruled on the ban, claiming he was “ a key supporter of a political group that has led the campaign to remove vehicular rights”.
