Please be aware that it has become necessary to close Public Bridleway SW17a and part of Bridleway SW18 to carry out works to repair damage. The closure will be taking place today (Wednesday 24 April) and it is hoped the bridleway will be reopened by the end of the day on Thursday 25 April 2019, if not before. To bypass the closed sections the alternative route will be Byway SW56, Atherfield Road, Park Lane, Corve Hill & Public Bridleway SW20. (image courtesy of 2019 Ordnance Survey)
