Quad bikes in Wharncliffe Woods

There seems to be a recent upsurge in the illegal use of high powered motorised vehicles in Wharncliffe Woods, especially quad bikes. This is causing increasing danger to both horse-riders and walkers.

Access seems to be via either close to (the long closed) Deepcar station or via Wraggs bridge onto Moor Hall Tip and then into the woods. Various barriers have been destroyed. In addition a number of gates on Wharncliffe Heath have been damaged and stock has escaped.
