The Council Levellers

Last weekend, barriers and traffic cones had been set up like a little orange fortess at the start of the Ock Valley Walk.

The fortess has gone and the kerbs have been levelled. (The levellers were a 17th century political movement. They weren't really about bringing everybody to the same level. But that is how they got labelled by their enemies.)

These new age levellers are employed by the council. They are helping to give EQUAL ACCESS to legs or wheels. (Hopefully not too many of those wheels will be shopping trolleys and motor cycles.)
