Where is this #2

Philip Storey of Arnside has commented on the original “Where is this” Post.

He has accompanied his comments with two images which, unfortunately, cannot be enlarged by “clicking” in a “Comment”.

Because I think that Philip’s observations are very pertinent I am placing the Images here so that anyone can click on them and view a full-size version in a separate window.

Let me know what you think.

A confusion of Whittingtons’

I copy, below, an exchange of emails that occurred today. No explanation is needed.

To: Whittington Web Site
I wonder if you could help.

Is the path between the golf course and the road going into Whittington a public right of way?

It used to be a very nice walk but is now really overgrown. I think the golf course used to keep the path clear but I am not sure.

Do you know?

I am trying to find out to get it cleared but need to be sure of my facts.
I would be grateful if you could offer any help or point me in the right direction.

Many thanks

Hi Louise,
From Devils Bridge to Whittington the path is a public right of way. From Whittingto to Arkholme there is a short stretch that is not a ROW but permission to use the path has been granted as a concession by Newton Estates.

The ordinance Survey map shows a public footpath between Devils Bridge and Underley Grange. I assume that is the path you refer too.

Unfortunately nobody is responsible for maintaining Public Rights of Way. Normaly the landowner does that because it encourages people to stay off other parts of the owners land.

There is a discussion on this subject on the Whittington Village Blog  at:

You may find it, together with the accompanying comments, of interest.

Best regards.

Hi John
Thank you.

When I was looking for information I read your blog which you gave me the link too (very interesting).

I have seen This path being used by runners and trainees from Whittington barracks medical centre, but now you can’t get through it easily at all.

This is what it looked like this morning.

I will try contacting the golf course to see if they will cut it back.

Thank you for replying.


To: Louise Branch
Your reference to Whittington Barracks made me realise that we are speaking of two different Whittington’s.

Yours is in Staffordshire and ours in Lancashire, two miles from Kirkby Lonsdale.

We both have a nearby Golf Course. Confusing isn’t it?

To: John Keegan
Oh gosh I am sorry!

My first google brought up Whittington in Kidderminster as well!!!

Our Whittington Golf course is being cut in half for HS2.

Nice speaking to you anyway!


To: Louise Branch
No problem, Louise. Brought a bit of a laugh to an otherwise boring Saturday.

Best regards.
