Treharris Right of Way
Treharris Right of Way. COUN. FRANCIS WOULD" FIGHT IT OUT." Coun. H. M. Lloyd (Mayor) presided at a meeting of the Parke and Ceme- teries Committee on Funday, the 6th inst. A letter was received from the agents of the Court Estate xe the road at Cae- marydwyn Farm, Queen's Road, in which he stated that his clients could not see their way to deal with the tri- angular piece of land, as it had been offered to an old resident." The Chairman said that it had been suggested by the Court Estate people that access to Woodland Place should be made by a gate from Thomastown Park. The Committee decided that no gate should be placed in Thomastown Park, and refused to assent to the closing of the road. Public and Landlord. A letter was received from the agent of Colonel Lockwood's estate at Tre- harris asking the Committee to close a gate which had been placed in the Park. Treharris, and which the agent claimoo allowed people to pass on to Colonel Lockwood's land. Mr. Marshall (Borough Engineer) said the gate had been put there at the request of the ex-Mayor. There was, however, he understood, a right of way there along the old Roman road. Coun. Dan Thomas: Surely you would not put a gate there at the re- quest of one member. Mr. Marshall: We thought it would be convenient for the public. Ald. W. Lewis: There can be no doubt about the right of way there. If we take that gate away, the public will lose their right to the ancient road. We should not do that for any land- lord Th<* r-'iWic have an undoubted Y'01! CkA it., T ha no douot liat •» e oould get a regiment to remove it. (Laughter.) The cost of the gate was but little. Coun. D. Thomas: Yes; but what right has any one member to give an order like this to our officials It should be done by resolution. AJd. W. Lewis (ex-Mayor) I have as much right to do it as any member. Coun. D. W. Jones: Was there a re- solution ? Ald. Lewis: No. The matter was such a small one that I did not think it worth while. It was only a matter of convenience to the public. It is used by hundreds. Coun. T. Williams said he knew the district very well, and doubted the right of way very much. Coun. Dan Thomas: Whether there is a right of way or no, I question the principle of the ex-Mayor in getting work done without resolution. Mayor: The ex-Mayor only did his duty on behalf of the public. Coun. Wilson: With regard to the fencing on the north side. it is abut- ting on the old Roman road. Some time ago an attempt was made to stop this. But we put styles there, and if we are denied the right to get on to the mountain, we should probably lose our right of way. Hundreds of people use this road. Mayor: We must refer the matter to the Town Clerk as to the right of way. Coun. Wilson: It may not be shown on the old ordnance maps, but we have plenty of evidence by old residents there, who can speak as to the right of way. Coun. Ll. Francis: Why not put the onus of proof regarding the right of way on the landlord? It will be time enough for us to move then. I don't see why we should ask the Town Clerk to report on what we consider our own Conn. Wilson: I beg to move that the Town Clerk reply to the effect that we have always recognised a right of way. I agree with Coun. Francis. Let the onus of proof fall upon the land- lord. Ald. W. Lewis We go over that way every day. and they don't attempt to stop us. I second Coun. Wilson. Coun. T. Williams: A good deal de- pends upon the position of the gate. Coun. D. W. Jones: Surely it is right for us to have the Town Clerk's advioe? We should look ridiculous if we had to climb down. It is purely a legal matter. A deal depends upon the covenant. Aid. W. Lewis: We don't want the Town Clerk's advice. We know all about it in Treharris. Coun. E. Morrell: Does anything more arise than what has been said here? The Town Clerk can only rely on hearsay and ordnance maps. Let the other people demonstrate their ownership. (Hear, hear.) If the con- tention put forward here is correct, it does not matter what is in the covenant. Coun. T. Williams: A good deal of talk is being made about an old Roman road, but I can remember a part of it being constructed. (Loud laughter.) Coun. E. Morrell: That would make it later than Anglo-Saxon. (Laughter.) Coun. LI..Francis: I would rather fight this question out than depend upon the Town Clerk. Aid. W. Lewis: Coun. Williams is regarded as one of the landlords down Continued on page A.
