  • Any news on the completion date for this as walking from Polebrook across field to marked point where path passes through the hedge there is a high metal gate which can only be climbed over with great difficulty. I reported this problem in the early summer last year and have seen no notification of any rectification of the problem. It was still a problem when I re-visited in mid autumn 2023. I am trying to organise a group walk along this path towards Armston and then on towards Barnwell. Can you l provide an update on the likely time scale for rectification of this problem.
