  • Currently it is so overgrown with stinging nettles in places, it’s impossible to use without stepping into the road to allow others to pass. Due to Covid 19 regs we are forced into the road to pass other users.

    The growth and restrictions prevent mums with pushchairs and children and/or dogs from walking safely at all.
