He said that if the track, which is now obliterated in parts, were to disappear, it would isolate a prehistoric mound situated along its way, leaving it out of sight and out of mind.
This mound, the Hougue des Platons, is a Neolithic burial chamber or ‘cyst’.
It is located on a surrounding narrow strip of land belonging to the Société, but access to it is over private land from the west.
From the east, it can be reached only by a tortuous trek along what seems like a private driveway and then over a National Trust field, often overgrown with gorse.
The danger of access to the Hougue disappearing, as well as the track to it, has been the subject of questions from Mr Le Sueur at the Société’s annual meeting for the past three years.
The track, he said, had existed ‘for time out of mind’, leading over Les Platons and past the mound towards what is now Rue d’Egypte.
