Huttonian deplores repetition
but there are times when banging on, year in, year out, seems indicated. A case inpoint is that passive tense, indecisive, notice about wheelchairs at the top of the path from Paxton House Croquet lawn to the path along the Tweed. Why such a timid approach? And why a misleading one? It is little to do with the gradient of the path which would not be too much of a challenge to the competent wheel chairer. But it is everything to do with the steep flight of steps 50 yards beyond the notice (no way round) and if you survive that there is a further assault course of pole obstructed pathway to shake up your liver and buckle your wheels. I wonder if the Paxton House Trust has cleared this message with its insurers. It does nothing to limits its liability in the event of an accident.
Please, Please Mr Director go for the simple advisory:
THIS PATH IS UNSUITABLE FOR WHEELCHAIRS. STEEP STEPS.
I don't want to have blog about this again
