"This in danger of becoming a flame war, which would be a real shame. Having read the above comments, I'd like to add a few additional comments. 1. Box junctions. The rule is "do not enter the box junction unless your exit is clear". Which the cas..."

"Dogs are allowed - indeed welcome - in the northern and southern woods. The lead ranger has a lovely springer spaniel called Basso, and it regularly takes him for walks in the woods. Dogs can run off lead in the woods, but must be on leads in the ..."
