Metal Stile

This metal stile is an access point to the dismantled railway path near to the old turntable.

These type of stiles are known as squeeze stiles.

I see it's been specially designed to allow fat people through. Equal opportunities strikes again!

We have several of these around our way I think it is to stop motorbikes and horses on the trail ways, although as a horse rider myself I can't see what the problem there is

Hi Elizabeth - If the stile is stop horse-riders it is probably to stop them leaving the trail there rather than stop them joining as the exit leads into an estate of private houses and then to a busy main road.
