HOL 73 Fence obs (2)
Before – January 2019

This must be one of the more obvious and seemingly straightforward path obstructions featured on PathWatch. A new 3 strand barbed wire fence strung across the old stone stile on Holmfirth 73. Real bread & butter work for any half  competent highway authority. Whilst it’s great that it has now been removed it should never have taken 20 months to do it!

A little waymarking, vegetation clearance and general TLC to get the path back into a more user friendly condition overall is still needed.
