  • Can you please take in to consideration that this path is accessable at the moment however when the crops are are taller it is difficult to walk through with a dog on a lead being a mere 30 cm wide at most points!! Not the 1m width that it should be. I will take additional photos in the coming weeks and fail to see how you can find this acceptable? You are only considering how accessable it is now and not how it will be in a month!
