  • Thank you for your enquiry. Further to our telephone conversation I can confirm that this footpath was inspected on 17/2/21. Unfortunately due to limited room on the highway at the start of this route it is not possible to install a standard fingerpost. A waymark has been attached to a wooden post at the start of this route to show the location of the footpath. A letter has been sent to the relevant landowner requesting that adequate access is provided through the electric fence that is currently obstructing this path within the next 28 days.
