Like last and for several years now we love to get away to our island paradise of Rarotonga. While I am away and the days I am not filming, I will be listing more history of the Cookham of yore!
So a Merry Christmas to one and all. So turn up your sound for some local island flavour:

I'm taking off this weekend for our annual Christmas holiday on Rarotonga in the Cook Islands. This card is made up from material that took last year. I hope to be back with more camera material early next year. So a Merry Christmas to all my followers.
So turn up your sound for local colour:

I honestly do not believe that the Planners have got "taste" when it comes to approving dwelling constructions.
Certainly not in and around the Cookhams.
Which highlights the oft used expression... "It's not what you know but who you know" - when dealing with the RBWM planning dept.

Watchman - I never said access was from the bottom, youíve interpreted that. Whilst I didnít, albeit wrongly, state my comments were about access from the top that is what meant.

Point taken ...
However all this talk about "traffic/cars" using Kennel lane to access the stables could so easily be interpreted
as traffic using BOTH ends of the lane.
Hence my surprise and subsequent confusion!

I wouldn't have said accessing the stables was 'traffic', not in the sense that it is normally used to define motor vehicles on roads anyway. The 'traffic' would have people who were using the stables, not using the track as a normal road.

The lane got its name from the kennels that at one time housed Stag Hounds. Stag hunting was quite a popular sport in the area. Remember Windsor Great Forest ran all the way to Cookham at one time.

The access to the stables is NOT from the bottom end ie., from Whyteladyes Lane but from the top -
ie., Church Road plus the tiniest bit of Kennel Lane.

So this kind of neutralises your misleading quote on the stable access ...viz.,
Quote
... There are cars etc going in and out of the stables all the time....

which could lead one to believe that these 'cars' access from the bottom of the lane!

Check out "Kennel Lane" on an Ordnance Survey map - it is barely a thin line from top to bottom - viz., a gated track.

I asked for your definition of "vehicle" - to which you replied as below - so once again I ask ... define "or other".
Quote
It has always been vehicle access; whether that is farm vehicle or other.

I walked my dogs up there for several years some 15 to 20 years ago(still do occasionally) ... and never once did I see "other" vehicles use it
other than the very occasional Copas tractor, labouring up the "lane". And as you so rightly point out, the track is now "less of a road" ...
which, by definition, (when it was never a road in the first place), would mean that it is just a tardy track now, only worse!
The word "Lane" therefore, is a tad misleading

It may well be that the owners of Hardings Farm have every right (not the sole right) to use the track known as Kennel Lane -
however, I would be astonished if access to the Hardings Farm stables has now been switched by the Richards' to come up from
Whyteladyes Lane!  Unless via a 4x4 or a tractor!
 
I know someone who bid for Hardings Farm long before the Richards bought it ... and therefore have a pretty comprehensive
knowledge of the whys and wherefores of the locality - hence my astonishment at the owners proposal to build 3 large dwellings
on the present stables footprint.

Your reference to words and phrases like "credibility" and "factually correct" are therefore, a wee bit erroneous, wouldn't you say?!  Wink.

I remember it as a gravel lane back in the 1940's, when I use to accompany my mother to the old WI hut at the top on the south side of the lane. That was when Whist Drives were social life of the village. Yes every week we use to walk there every week from Widbrook. It was a green tin clad building with a tongue and groove wood clad interior.

from Neil Hawkins (Police, Communications Officer, Forcewide)

If you become a victim of rural crime or suspect that a crime has taken place, you should report it to police by calling the non-emergency number, 101. If an incident is in progress, or there is an immediate threat to life, you should call 999.

Important details to note when reporting an incident include the date, time and details of what you have seen, along with a description of any people or vehicles involved. This aide memoire can be printed out and kept at home or in your vehicles for easy access in the event of an incident:
https://www.thamesvalley.police.uk/documents/1327/4608_Rural_Crime_Aide_Memoir_3up_v3.pdf

By reporting incidents to the police you can help to build resilience and reduce the impact of rural crime on your local community. There are often fewer witnesses to rural crimes and greater opportunities for criminals to target isolated properties and businesses. The effect of these crimes can also be greater, with people feeling more vulnerable due to their remote location.
