Take Care – Permissive Path Repairs

The exceptional rains of recent times have washed out much of the lower section of the Marchamley to Hodnet path. As a result it is now impassable to wheeled traffic, although walkers can still use it – but please take special care on the uneven surface.
As regular users will know, this isn’t the first time this has happened; seemingly because, since it was first constructed, we’ve not had a settled period of weather long enough to allow the surface to fully mesh together/bed down before it is washed away by another bout of heavy rain.
Shropshire Council and the landowner have just agreed a new plan for path replacement plus an earth embankment adjacent – to divert water run off from the adjacent field. This will take place as soon as the weather permits.
