Why would anyone chain up a gate on the NCN??
Coming back from a pub lunch yesterday, using a part of the NCN. There's a section that uses a gravel track to pass a marina, skirt a creek, then enter a track through farmland passing through a large metal gate. Never had any problems with it before, only when I tried to gain access yesterday, when I tried to open the gate it wouldn't move. I looked down to find someone had placed a chain and combination padlock on it. And they really meant it too, because it was a long chain wrapped around quite a few times. What gives? Obviously, I reported it.
