Just over a month ago we published a photo of the obelisk, showing where substantial tree-clearing had taken place. We pointed out that the footpath up to the obelisk was closed – ‘Heras’ temporary fencing had been placed across it.
Since then, we’ve seen little evidence of any more clearing work. And we assumed that the fencing across the footpath had been forgotten; a week ago someone had moved it out of the way:
But, fast forward a few more days and the fence has been replaced… Why, when it seems that there’s no work underway, has the obelisk been ‘out of bounds’ for so long?
