Footpath Closure

Wednesday 11th September from 08.00 till about 10.00

The wooden footbridge across Littlestock Brook between the allotment field and Astor Estates will be closed while a tree is being felled. The footpaths along the new Woodland Walk and down to the bridge from the other direction will also be closed off near the bridge.

Please keep clear while the work is being done.

If you use these footpaths you will have seen one of the ash trees that has fallen. This was due to fungal infection weakening the base of the trunk so that in the recent high winds it just snapped. Its neighbour is suffering a similar condition and needs to be felled before it also falls. This tree is leaning right across both our footpaths to the bridge.

The area should be safe by lunchtime.
