I remember around the early 90's a man cutting the grass going right over the edge and landing in the cab of an HGV - had been round our house at the time if I remember correctly - will check with the old lady tonight.

I do however think they are probably there as a health and safety gone mad measure.  Wonder how long before a transit pick up pulls up and steals them to 'weigh in'.

I'm so glad it's not just me thinking this.....

When was the last time we saw anyone on that bit - oh.... that would be never then....

Wall looks great, railings look stupid.. IMHO

Really love all the work that has been done on the retaining walls in the surrounding areas however I wonder if they now have a little too much left over.  The council have raised the wall height at the entrance to Hogarth and put some coping stones on top.  All well and good - if they sandblast the existing wall to match it will look quite nice.  However they have now added a really ugly metal fence on top.  Now is this to stop people going down the slope and jumping onto the road - something I have never witnessed in all my twenty-five years plus of living in the area?  At the risk of sounding like a Daily Mail reader is this health and safety gone mad!

. Agree never yet Seen anybody on that slope .even the grass cutters keep away to steep .
