Previously on PathWatch we’ve blogged about 2 large beech trees coming down on Colne Valley Bridleway 197 here and here . The trees came down in some wet & windy weather in September. Whilst it’s undoubtedly a tricky job to remove them, and one for an expert, the state this popular path has been left in after works to clear the trees is shocking.
The metal guard rail has been broken and left twisted across the path and one of the root balls has been left sat on the bridleway. There is no signing and guarding of the arboreal disaster and the public are left to take their chances.
