The county of Gwynedd in North Wales has a population less than half that of Kirklees but seems more adept at funding and maintaining its public rights of way network. The Welsh Coastal path has had an had obvious investment and is a wonderful asset but most of the “ordinary” paths we walked were well signed,waymarked and in good condition. Even these off piste paths have benefited from new gates,drainage work and waymarking. So much so that walking and navigating was the pleasure it should be.
Perhaps our new council leader Cllr Pandor and a few of his big cheeses should have an all expenses paid trip to North Wales to learn how it should be done? Then again…..
