"after 15mph signs were persistently ignored by pedestrians."

So by putting white lines on the road drivers are going to keep to 15mph , doesn't make sense to me. its a question if that road wide enough to be marked for two lanes , .So your not allowed to walk up that road now you have to go round through the woods.

Last time I went to Haigh Hall was in 2006 it was a dump, staffed by snooty bastards who where so far up themselves you could only see the sole of their boots.

The council should have realised that once they had got a foot in the door they would try to take over, how can they stop folks from using those lawns at the front of the hall, the entirety of Haigh Country Park is after all - Public Land - and not hotel exclusivity.

Why have they marked that road with lines, will they next be wanting exclusive rights to use the road from Wigan Lane to the hall, I wouldn't put it past them.

Interesting considering what is changing at Haigh Hall......

Haigh Hall Hotel - i have just found this information on the lease documents and it states quite clearly that he is not allowed to block any public access
4.22 Retention of Public Access - The Lessee will not erect any fence, hedge or structure along the boundary to the premises or within the premises which shall prevent, hinder or restrict pedestrian access or egress of members of the public along any of the pathways or roads within the premises to and from the Lessor's neighbouring property as are indicated on the plan !!!

Spread the word 😡
