  • This style has no foot plate or any other means of crossing this obstacle - except climbing on poles which are dangerous when wet. Note it was reported in 2019 - was it ever fixed?

  • I put in this original report last year, when I walked this path earlier this year the wooden bars were not there so we just walked through. These metal poles must have been put in recently to stop bikes using the footpath. As has been reported today , a footplate needs adding to give safe access over the poles, or a kissing gate fitted.

  • Thank you for your enquiry. I can confirm that the ownership of this particular section of land has changed and we have had difficulty locating the responsible landowner. I can confirm that we have recently contacted the landowner we now believe to be responsible and have informed them of this matter. Improvement works to be undertaken to the stile/fencing to ensure adequate access can be gain along the footpath within the next 28 days.
