Hugely overgrown pathway unable to access benson village by foot

It is impossible to walk to benson village as the pathway along Benson road is completely overgrown. I wouldn't like to walk down there alone but with a pushchair as I was today it was impossible! My son was being stung by nettles and scratched by all the brambles and other overgrown plants. we were forced to walk on the road in parts as it was completely closed off. With the road so dangerous with fast moving vehicles and sharp bends we were defeated and had to turn around and go home. That is our only path into a village with a shop, post office and other amenities. I feel trapped! It isn't one specific area it's all the way along the road.
