Falloden Nature Reserve Closed to Walkers

The Falloden Nature Reserve early on a spring morning

The Falloden Nature Reserve between Winchester College and St Catherine's Hill has been shorn of many of its mature trees and has been closed for over a year, but seems now to be shut off to the public for good. This is a great pity; it was not well-known and never in danger of being overused, but the College seems to think that they should keep people out on 'health and safety' grounds after a woman sued them after falling on one of the bridges. That is letting the cart drive the horse; make sure that the bridges and walkways are safe and maintain insurance. The College's rationale would require most of the pavements in the country to be closed to the public.
