The Pin when dropped at the correct location says it is not your responsibility. So I have dropped the pin at the nearest point it will register. From the point where the pin is go 300m NE along the footpath to Ringstead. Path is flooded for 10m on diverted path. Path is between wire fences and walkers are climbing through the fence to get around. As it is Mick George quarry diversion can you get them to drop some stone on the path at the low point. Also from this point for 30m a planted hedge is growing halfway across the path.

  • Thank you for your enquiry. I can confirm that some routes such as this public footpath have a natural surface and these can vary with location, the weather conditions and the seasons. Due to this period of wet weather it is inevitable that the ground conditions along some paths may increasingly become wet and muddy. We will continue to monitor the conditions of this path however, no further action is required at this present time regarding the flooding at this location. Minor clearance works will be carried out when the Officer is next in the area.
