Apparently this drop kerb was set by cyclists fed up with either having to dismount or bump up the kerb. The path is a useful link to make a direct crossing of the A120.

Barriers on NCN 14 - Hidcote Way Note that these barriers were installed where road traffic must give way to traffic on the cycle track =(

Gate at Rayne Station

Gate at Leyfields (street not shown on map); at least we can get through here, even if it's a hassle. This gate is the last place to exit the Flitch Way before the barriers at Warner Close (also not shown on the map)

Near Pods Brook Road, acess to the Flitch Way is only poorly obstructed.

open access to the Flitch Way near Kenworthy Road

Near Braintree station

Stuck again at Gatewoods Lane; we got through this one by taking Trailer's buggy wheel off, but it was a tight squeeze.
