Tipping behind Oaklands - there is a lot of illegal tipping on the Dingle footpath behind Oaklands. The latest is this pile of wood chippings next to the 'No tipping' sign on that path. The public refuse tips are now open, please use them.


School holidays, nothing to do? - please don't do this

Nitrous oxide causes dizziness, hallucinations and irregular heartbeat. It also causes vitamin B12 depletion leading to numbness of the limbs and eventual degradation of the nervous system including the spinal cord.
SO... if you are an aspiring athlete or want to play football and not end up in a wheel chair please leave this stuff alone. It's more dangerous than you think.  More info here

The public footpaths in the area provide a great amenity and, understandably, are heavily used these days.
Please do your best keep to the paths and especially keep all dogs under control. (The area around the Gowy is a bird nesting area and now is the nesting season).
A map of the routes can be found here along with any slight variations. Enjoy the countryside!
