Controversy comes to a tranquil and beautiful walkway

I think Olivia O Leary has put it rather well

I can’t match here eloquence with the written word but I think these photos also tell the same story. The Barrow is our piece of Paradise and we don’t need a hardcore surface to spoil it.

    Let the powers that be leave the beautiful Barrow track alone. It doesn’t need any interference except to keep the grass suitable for walking on. Preserve what we have that’s good for ourselves and our visitors.

      This is a fabulous route as it is and I think a hard surface will be detrimental to the amenity and the environment.
      Local knowledge must be taken into consideration and valued when making this decision.
