Dangerous and partially hidden ironworks

Reported in the Parks and Greenspace category anonymously at 20:05, Sunday 24 February 2019

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

PREVIOUSLY REPORTED 2 YEARS AGO. Identifiedd for removal by contractors but still nothing done.

Previous report... In the ditch between the field and the lane running down from Rookery lane, there is a large amount of dangerous iron from railings which have fallen. These have very sharp edges and if a child or dog could easily become impaled and suffer serious injury. A friend's dog was killed when he ran into old iron railings in undergrowth in Bethlem Hospital and everytime I see these railings along this ditch I am concerned that a similar accident is inevitable here.

  • These railings extend from bottom of lane where Bromley college is all the way down to the horse field. Many of these jagged railing protrude only a few inches from the ground and some are in the ditch. I sense that perhaps one or 2 are being dealt with however this needs a thorough sweep of area to ensure all are removed and area is made safe from old ironworks.
