photo, Ben Gamble The Nanny State comes to the country

This ridiculous 'Health and Safety overkill' was spotted and photographed by Ben Gamble.
 
He states7#58;-
The signs say "Caution! Hidden hole on track", and have been erected by the South Downs Park authority. If you look really carefully, there's a brown mark midway between the posts, which is the small hole. Do we really need to be told this?

It surely would have been easier [and cheaper] to simply take a spadefull of soil and just fill in the hole rather than have these unsightly signs. No wonder there is never any money for important issues
