'Get off my land!: Photo Daily Post
If anything acts as a red rag to a bull for a mountain activist, its the insensitivity of landowners and farmers to the access rights of the general public. As someone who was turfed off Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon) a couple of years ago because I was crossing land on the lower slopes above Beddgelert which, I was informed, was ‘private land’...whatever happened to the countryside rights of way act?...then being corralled by farmers onto eroded trade routes up the mountain rather being allowed to roam free, is highly irritating to say the least!
On the social media, others have pointed out that Mr Morris and his family are only too happy to exploit the walking community through their Halfway House Cafe and bunkhouse while leaving the watercourses and fences on the land gathering black silage bags and general agricultural rubbish which he/they can’t be bothered to dispose of sensibly. The term including ‘pot, kettle and black’ spring to mind!
