Moss covers the foot path adjacent to the bungalow at the end of Chapel Lane, Maidford.

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 2 minutes later. ref: 1855873.

The moss on the pavement runs adjacent to the Bungalow at the end of Chapel Lane, it's always like it but seems particularly bad at the moment. It completely covers the footpath for about 30+ yards. When it is wet it is lethal. When possible pedestrians tend to walk in the road as its a quiet lane but this is not always possible. Yesterday I slid over on the moss and twisted/bruised my knee. It is obviously due to the fact that this side of the road is NW facing and rarely dries out properly but I am conscious of the fact that we have a lot of elderly people in Chapel Lane.
