Is Winterbourne Hollow safe to walk down? That long path cut off from the road by trees? It always looks a bit spooky to me.

Have lived in Winterbourne area for thirty plus years, myself, my wife, our kids all use/used the path regularly. We are all still alive and well, unrobbed, unmolested, unthreatened....
Worst problem has been when the uneven path gets slippery or frosty due to fallen leaves in winter!
The world isn't as full of undesirable types as some tabloids would have you believe.

Thanks for replying. I know there was one incident but hopefully that's a one off.

If you want to scare yourself wait till a foggy night and walk up the footpath from the roundabout to the crossroads at juggs lane having read about my story first. On your own of course!

It's damn scarey when the pavement is icy and snowy!
A couple of winters ago, there was a section of fencing down, and it was most perturbing to realise that one slip would send you plummeting down the bank into the oncoming traffic.

Well this happened (see link) but I suppose it could happen anywhere. I suppose once you've decided somewhere is worrisome and then something happens there, it confirms it in your mind. However it would be good to get a more balanced picture.

Me and my pals used to use the path as a racetrack. We'd get an old style roller-skate and balance a piece of wood or an old annual length ways across it. We'd then sit on it and use the straps of the skate as reins to try and steer. Used to pick quite a speed and the raised banks at the side of the path were vital when overtaking or racing side by side. Happy days!
