Access to Elveden Estate      26/09/2007 13:54:30
Following TIMBER's latest meeting the issue of people continuing to ride on the Elveden Estates area of Brandon Country Park has been raised by the Forestry Commission rep. Elveden Estate is private property leased to the FC for management and is also used commercially by the owners, there is no guaranteed right of access, in the past it has been purely by goodwill. Unfortunately in the past 6 months or so a small minority have blatantly ignored requests from the owners to only ride at certain times, going as far as ripping up signage to this effect. As a result the owners have now placed a blanket ban on access, this effectively puts classics such as 'Magic Carpet' and 'Landing Lights' out of bounds, although much felling has been done recently in this area anyway. To get us mountain bikers back in the Elveden Estate's owners' good books, and hopefully regain access in the future, we urge ALL riders at Thetford/Brandon to please obey the signs the FC have placed and stay clear of this area until a resolution can be reached. Until then continued breaches will only harm our cause. If anybody has any questions please go through our website/forum at http://www.timbermtb.org.
