Can anyone help with information on  usage by cyclists or horse riders on footpath 579009/582001 from Lindale to Low Meathop,  as the Lake District National Park  Authority would like to here from  you  as they receive a claim  from  the Cumbria Bridleway Society that the footpath was incorrectly recorded as a footpath when the definitive map was compiled in the 1950’s. For information  read the attached  Consultation letter – August 2013  which is consultation letter from the Lake District National Park Authority.
