Knapton Green

Permissive Path between Knapton and Knapton Green now open

The new permissive path between Knapton and Knapton Green is now open for use and the Parish Council would like to offer huge thanks to land owner Chris Hicks and to farmer Steve Hammond for giving permission and allowing the path to be created.

Permissive paths, sometimes referred to as concessionary paths or permitted paths, exist because the landowner has given permission for walkers to cross their private land.   They are not public rights of way and the public do not have a legal right to use them

Chris Heath used his considerable skill with a mini-digger (owned jointly between them) and worked with three councillors Pat, Alan & Peter to forge the path along the edge of the field and through two lots of trees and hedging to make it as safe as possible for walkers between the two parts of our parish.

It is an earth track and will take a little time to bed down so it’s not ideal for wheelchairs or prams, but provides considerably safer passage for walkers than dodging cars on the busy Knapton Road.

These signs will be located at each end of the footpath.
The Parish Council thanks the farmers for allowing safe passage and asks everyone using them to respect their land.

Village Sign

The old village sign, Knapton Green

Time has finally caught up with the old Knapton Green village sign.   Originally made by Henry Wild when Miss Constance Robinson generously donated the bus stop to the village, it is testament to his skill and his quality of workmanship that it has welcomed visitors to the village for almost thirty years.

The Parish Council commissioned a local craftsman, David, to create a new sign that was sympathetic to the original design and utilised the same fittings that Mr Wild had used, so as to retain the look and feel of the original.

The sign is now installed and, like Mr Wild’s original, it welcomes visitors to Knapton or Knapton Green, depending on which direction they are approaching the village from.

Cleaning up The Green…

Installing Dog Waste Bin - June 2020

Our Vice-Chair is concreting it in place

A beautiful part of our parish, Knapton Green is less than half a mile from the Village Hall and is surrounded by beautiful countryside, criss-crossed by footpaths winding their way through woods and fields with views of the sea.

So it’s no surprise that we often see walkers and ramblers with their pets passing through as they explore the North Norfolk coast and of course they are welcome.   But the number of instances of dog poo being left in bags around the green or put into the Rubbish Bin has increased and when a concerned resident contacted the Parish Council to bring it to our attention, we acted quickly to resolve it.

New Dog Waste Bin
We have installed a new Dog Waste Bin, which will be emptied on a regular basis by North Norfolk District Council.   We have sited it on the opposite side of the bus stop to where the normal waste bin is, in an attempt to try to avoid the confusion of what goes where.

If you would like to contact us about this situation, or anything else about our village, please click here or on the Contact Us button below and share your thoughts with us.
