This stirs the memory:
When we used to take the kids along the throughways, I made sure they understood to not even put a hand over that fence, that we were on a track and had to get off it a.s.a.p.
That was because of the farmers and other property owners. I’m not sure what experiences they’d had over the years but any time anyone came down that path, someone would come out of the house and stand defiantly, about to bellow.
All the walkers I’d seen had been fine, they’d gone along with the rules and signs but these residents were clearly highly antagonistic to anyone using the throughways, no matter how polite.
Any light to be thrown on this?
