Keeping footpaths and bridleways open...
The Parish Council is conducting a survey of all the footpaths and bridleways in the parish to ensure that these are kept open and are easy of access.
If you know of any paths which are obstructed by brambles, overgrown hedges, overhanging trees or any other obstacles, please inform the Clerk.
Ordnance Survey grid references are most helpful in locating the trouble spots, but any detailed description of the exact location(s) will be welcome.
