  • Now that nature is waking up from winter, the trees and hedges are becoming thicker and bigger. There are places along this footpath where you have to step into the road to get past the obstructions. It's a 40MPH road, it seems most don't stay below this limit, and so is quite an exhilarating experience dicing with death this way!

  • My wife and I tried to walk along the footpath at the end of December 2015. This has been open for nearly a year now. The overgrown hedges are so bad in places now that we actually had to walk along the A602, which was not a very pleasant experience. Does it take a serious or fatal accident to get someone to actually cut these bushes and trees back? Surely someone is responsible for keeping the footpath accessible?
