  • Thank you for your enquiry. This location was inspected on 24/11/21. A letter has been sent to the relevant landowner requesting that the footpath is marked out through the arable field within the next 21 days.

  • Hi. Just adding photo of ploughed field. The path should run from where the photo was taken, diagonally across the field to the telegraph pole and finish at the opposite corner of the field. The footpath is ploughed up every year but a small alternative path left around the edge of the field for people to walk on. However, no such path has been left this year, hence the complaint.
