You may be aware of this footpath issue. I am not aware of any of the background or issues that have suddenly brought the path into the limelight. I am though delighted that the Civic Society is taking an interest and bringing some practical information into play.
I have not personally ever walked the route, but I hope that DFBS will encourage its members to complete an evidence form if they are familiar with the path
If you would like to complete a form, please email me: richard266ATme.com and I will send you a copy
