The path is very overgrown and the deep ruts caused by motorbikes has made the bridleway dangerous to use. The drainage is very poor and there is a possible water leak. All by all this right of way is in need if some urgent work.

  • I have ridden along this bridleway yesterday and the condition has worsened. The leak which is the responsibility of Anglian Water has not been fixed and has worsened. The tracks made by the motorbikes now really make safe riding very difficult.
