I was thwarted a few weeks ago on one of my regular local walks by a completely obstructed path.
Well today I followed the same route to see if anything had improved.
I’m not sure if the local authority or the farmer have got round to doing anything but I’m pleased to find the way open. I suspect some local walker/activist, I know a few, has cleared the way – well done. I think that in future with financial constraints placed on local authorities and the ever increasing pressure put on rural societies that we will all have to take things into our own hands to preserve the footpath network.
I continued on my way back to Longridge on unobstructed and for the most part signed rights of way.
