A lot of letters in the title…

  • PROW – Public Right of Way
  • OCH8 – is the public footpath number of the PROW that runs from the corner of New Street by Appletrees and crosses the railway line heading towards Poolfield Farm. It then becomes OCH3 and heads down past Underwood Farm to Huntingford.
  • BOTO – a Bridge or Tunnel Order, which was sought because of the risks to pedestrians crossing the railway line.

Essentially, this rejection of the Order means OCH8 remains closed. The Permissive Path that includes the steps up and over the railway line has not currently to our knowledge been withdrawn.
