Back to all reports

This and the next wooden footpath stile is badly broken and very unsafe. A lone walker would have great difficulty on the first one, near the house, and the next one, at the start of the quarry.

The wood has rotted, the step is broken and it’s perilous keeping one’s balance and getting over, especially with a dog on a lead. The second one, at the inner corner of the same field - the other side of the ponies - is also wobbly, pretty rotten and needs replacing. This right of way is well used so this will be affecting lots of walkers and lockdown exercisers. Many thanks.

  • Haven't been up there since as it was so dangerous to get over - I can go and have a look in the next couple of days if you want to email me again to see?

  • The first stile, which is where the marker is, has been fixed and is no longer dangerous- thank you. However, the next stile along this path, at the boundary of the next field where that field leads down to the disused quarry (see map) has not been fixed and is still wobbly and dangerous. I reported this one at the same time as the other one, though it is not as bad as the first one. Access to it is easy - you just walk on fro the stile that has been fixed, past the small ponies and you will see the stile ahead of you. Fixing should be an easy job, with some sturdy timber to make a more robust step and a strong post to hold onto as you get over. thank you.

    Still open, via questionnaire

  • 2 August 2020: I walked the route yesterday to check the second stile - the one at the start of the quarry on the inside of the pony field - the next boundary in from where the marker shows on the map. Thank you for the further work but, for elderly ramblers and those with children etc, I think there is still a problem: the step has been repaired but moves as you get on it as it's not anchored into the ground - and there is nothing stable to hang onto as you get over as the old posts on each side move all over the place, held up only by a loose wire mesh fence. it needs making more robust and with something to hold onto as you get over please.
