  • Please note that this report mislocates the ‘bridge’ in question. The bridge over the stream (the marked location) is not at issue. Concern is however raised about the ditch crossing made of sleepers on the upper, eastern, side of the Spinney, as the public footpath enters the field headed towards Brington. It is set at an angle and becomes slippery and potentially unsafe when wet.
