Metal marker post laying in verge

Reported via desktop in the Public Right of Way footpath category anonymously at 13:41, Monday 13 May 2024

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5966948.

Seen 12th May laying along verge, by Footpath FP258 from Washneys Road, at sharp bend 150 metres NE of Little Washneys. Hard to see if any damage, i.e. from passing vehicle, but unlikely if so close to verge so maybe uprooted on purpose?

Asset ID: FP258

  • My guess is that the sign post was uprooted deliberately. The landowner seems not to have the slightest interest in maintaining FP258. At one time a metal "V" gate marked the boundary between the road and the footpath: this no longer there. Worst of all the footpath is partially obstructed by masses of over hanging vegetation, which needs clearing. Incidentally, I live in SE14 not the LB Bromley and have walked in the area for some areas.

  • I don't know, sorry. I go for country rambles regularly at weekends, very often to the same favourite areas and footpaths - mostly in Bromley - but not in any particular order. Like Mr Meredith I too noted that the "V" stile had gone, and the first third of the path towards Port Hill had been like an absolute jungle. My worry of course is always that if someone is intent on preventing access, an obstacle could be the next move.

  • Please can we have an update on this matter ? It seems to me that the landowner in question is taking a leaf out of Von Hoogstraton's copy book. I hope that Bromley Council is more pre-emptive than East Sussex was regarding his obstructionism.
