Goings On At The Pit Heap in Talk of the Town Posted July 23, 2013 · Report reply Hi - anyone know what's going on up there? Thing seem to happen quite randomly since the Sustrans path was built ... a few new bins, picnic tables appear... A few weeks ago a digger dumped some boulders and asphalt at the top. This week containers have appeared housing tools and the steep hill to the south east side is being dug up. Haven't seen any planning applications posted anywhere either on the county website or on lamp posts or anything. It seems they have carte blanche to do what they like up there in any case as they let the bike club create a track in the middle of the woods (not that I think this is a bad thing particularly), just wonder what's going on. My only worry would be if they are building a proper surfaced path up the hill it would make it more appealing for the clampets who ride motorbikes around... who already cause great annoyance on the Free Wood path.
