My grandparents lived stubshaw, also aunts / uncles, my dad when he was younger.I'm a bryner originally, now in Abram.
The garden will be lovely when shrubs go in, but the entrance being relocated is a must.
If you look at the picture the pavement is dropped, likely due to the increased use of mobility scooters, now these can reach a fair speed, especially on an incline and there are more and more being used all the time. They tend to stop at a main road , but are very likely to just keep going at that spot.Once shrubs are in and growing they wouldn't be seen by vehicles exiting till the last second.Same with small children.
Its common sense , its needs to be moved before theres an accident.I understand them wanting to follow the original design, and I'm 100% for keeping things unspoiled and not modernising everything,when its practical, but that original garden was designed before cars, wheelchairs and traffic.
