Alscot Estate has raised concern about the increased use - by dog walkers - of the fields adjacent to The Bell.
The estate withdrew agreements for grazing on this land to allow immediate access by Alscot Estate/The Bell to clean fields.
Since livestock has been removed, the fields are being frequented more and more by dog walkers.
The land does not have any public rights of way across it, nor has public access been sanctioned.
Therefore, people are requested to refrain from using these fields for exercising dogs.
Alscot Estate is sympathetic to the needs of dog walkers and is exploring the possibility of offering alternative routes across estate land.
