MONITORING the state of the PUBLIC FOOTPATHS and BRIDLEWAYS in the PARISH

akeley_footpaths
There are numerous public footpaths and bridleways criss-crossing our village and surrounding area within the parish limits. The ultimate responsibility for the upkeep of these ‘rights of way’ lies with the County Council and the landowners. The Parish Council is asking for volunteers to walk one (or more if you are feeling energetic) of these routes during the month of May in order to identify and report back on any problems such as broken stiles, missing directional signs, areas that have become overgrown etc. So, if you enjoy walking and getting out in the fresh air, or giving your dog (or children!) a good dollop of exercise, pick a nice day and a Footpath number and get out there! It would make sense to liaise so that routes are not covered twice. Therefore, we would be grateful if you would call Alice Guise (860 158) and advise her of your planned route and she will be able to tell you if that particular one has been walked already. The website has a section displaying the routes of our footpaths and there are hard copies also available. Please click here to visit the maps page.

Happy rambling!
