Areas of Law / Property

I would like to stop people climbing over my fence and using my garden as a short cut from the social club next door. I’m thinking of putting carpet gripper on top of the fence, which is 7ft high and 40ft long. I intend putting 10” x 10” warning signs on both sides. Am I entitled to do this?

There’s no strict law against doing this, but if someone is injured as a result you might find yourself either facing a claim from them, or, in extreme cases, in trouble with the police. If you go ahead, bear in mind that people may be visiting the social club in the dark, so unless the signs are well lit they may easily miss them.  You should discuss your concerns with the social club who may be able to help and warn people as well.
