I was thinking the latest Welsh/Mendipian conservation technique of installing fake entrance lids for people to grind locks off.
Smiles all round as a Cornish caver passes their Mendipian lock/gate removal exam.
[Should add, I'm very much in favour of uninformed public dissuading measures such as lids where needed and also I have no reason to suspect the Cornish are more gate breakers than installers but being from Devon, the odd chance to insult the Cornish is appreciated]
