The winter so far has been well below average in terms of rainfall and follows on from an extended drought in 2018. However the byway continues to deteriorate with work carried out last summer already damaged by vehicles.
Repairing and maintaining Ramsden Road for all traffic (including motor vehicles) is now Kirklees Council’s and local ward councillors preferred option. It will be interesting to see what they come up with and how long it lasts. In the meantime webbed feet are an advantage.
