Spiders on stilts

Took Winston for a walk about an hour ago. Late, dark, not windy. Part of our route involves the old road between our village and the next. It’s around 12 feet wide at least. It has raised verges now – to stop “travellers” camping there – and just behond those verges are trees and bushes. It’s a quiet night, no breeeze. I’m walking along in the middle of this road and I’m getting facefuls of spider web. Maybe not ‘facefuls’ but enough that it’s irritating and I can feel them going over my head and off when I brush through my hair (I’m worth it ;) ). So how do they get 6 ft up with a 12+ ft gap? They can only be using stilts.
