    Jim that's a little scientific for a lazy Sunday afternoon, I will have to check the formula later.

    im a common sense person, if there is a big puddle it needs filling and drainage ie maintenance. The authorities always have the options of width, weight and seasonal restrictions. Obviously that doesn't mean they wouldn't have to carry out their duty to maintain the route.

    if people are so deeply offended by vehicles and seeing the evidence they have been on the track, why do they use it? There are enough problems in life without going out for a nice pleasant walk just to get upset.

    As for the idiots and antisocial motor vehicle users on the lane I would agree with some of you what wants doing to them!

    I see you have never tried walking down a bridleway in Leicestershire afther the local hunt has been through during a wet Autumn, it is virtually imposssible. So should all Bridleways in Leicestershire be downgraded to footpathes as horses can make them impassible to walkers?

    Horses do not make them impassable to horses.

    Walkers do not make them impassable to walkers.

    Bikes do not make them impassable to bikes.

    4x4, a vehicle, makes them impassable to other vehicles that are not a 4x4.

    Therefore, part of a group prevents access by others of that group.

    Let's compare like with like.

    The fact that they may also deny access to other users is coincidental and may be a further matter to consider.

    Actually they do just depends on the number of horses and the Terrain. When I was in Poland years ago on a horse and card the mud was so bad the horse was up to its waist in mud, sensible (i.e sober) horse owners went around that bit. Or just go back to why metalled roads were built in this country because in winter some non metalled roads were impassable, there were no 4 x 4s in those days.

    One qustion has not been asked in this thread, which I think is pertinant and I have not been able to find the answer.

    How many 4x4s, motorbikes, horses, cyclists walkers actually use this track?

    It's easy if you look for extreme situations. Shame they aren't relevant to the UK.

    Numbers don't matter.

    It's access for all.
