Isn't strange how walkers are welcome everywhere - they are banning 4x4s from places like the Brecon beacons and yet millions of walkers do untold damage and make one hell of a mess - they even destroyed a bronze age burial cairn on top of pen y fan thinking it was just a pile of rocks - they took the stones to make windbreaks etc!!!

The tops of some of these peaks don't have a single blade of grass anymore but that is fine because it has been done by "walkers" - reckon they should stick to crisps!!!

Similar thing with Dartmoor a few years ago. Mountain bikes banned from bridle paths etc. Spoke to one Park Ranger and he candidly admitted that damage by horses and walkers was much greater that damage from cycles, but erosion as a problem, and they couldn't get away with banning horses or walkers!
