Boyah Grange – Far Lane to Potato Pit Lane in Dale Abbey, South Derbyshire
The BHS in Derbyshire is pursuing a claim for a bridleway along a route from Far Lane in Ockbrook to Boyah Grange and Potato Pit Lane in Dale Abbey.
A public inquiry will be held in November to decide the case.
There is historical documentary evidence in support of the route but it is likely that the outcome will depend on evidence of use by horse-riders in the period 1951 to 1971.
We are in contact with several people who have ridden the route but if anybody else remembers using this route on horseback in the 1950s, 1960s or early 1970s please get in touch urgently with Ben Benest.
