Annual Footpath Survey January 2019

1) Thursday 10th January carried out the 2019 Annual Footpath Survey for Holmer & Shelwick. 13.5 miles walked in 7.5 hours covering footpaths HO1, HO3, HO4, HO6, HO8, HO8A, HO9, HO10, HO13, HO14, HO15, HO16, HO17 and bridleway HO18

2) Path HO1 was walked in the company of Mark Millmore, Chairman of the Holmer & Shelwick Parish Council.

3) It will be seen from the following pictures that many of the stiles in the parish need repair or replacement. It is hoped that this will start in 2019

  1. An excellent report by the footpath officer Duncan, thank you. It shows the extent of work that needs to be carried out to keep the public footpaths safe and clear for all walkers in the parish. An annual footpath survey is a good idea.
