The footpath above the road, which is the only pedestrian route past Lea Chapel, is becoming increasingly delapidated and awkward to use. Last year it was dangerous at night with no street lamps and nothing has been done since to repair it. Nettles grow across it from the bulging wall. The bank below, onto the road, is sinking, partly due to vehicles scraping against it. There are two short flights of steps between the path and the road which are necessary for anyone walking from the public footpath on the opposite side of the road, needing to avoid traffic, and one in particular is too overgrown to use. The problem has been increasing for several years and the path needs to be accessible for residents and the many walkers who visit.
