  1. I contacted the Forestry Commission offices yesterday regarding Scarr Bandstand. As you are no doubt aware there is a right of way which is used regularly from the top of the hill facing the bandstand which then gives access at the bottom of the hill to the rear of the bandstand where the path continues down to the access road which goes left to the Elwood road and right which goes towards Sling. The temporary fence which you have erected to provide a clear area for the performances on the weekend is still in place and is blocking the right of way. As your next event at the Bandstand is not until the end of August you will need to clear an area of fencing large enough to allow access to the right of way as soon as possible as you have no right to block this. Please advise me by return when you intend to do this by email to You also need to ensure that if permanent fencing is erected it will need to have two access gates to allow for members of the public to continue to use he existing right of way. As the majority of people using the path are dog walkers stiles will not be suitable and I would be interested to know what your intention regarding the permanent fencing is.

    1. Hi Margaret
      This is nothing to do with the history society, and I share your concern being a frequent forest walker myself. I’ll let the right people know immediately, regards, Cheryl Mayo, LHS
