Holmfirth Footpath 57 New Water Feature Dealt With Quickly!

HOL 57
New Water Feature January 2020

Holmfirth Footpath 57 has featured on PathWatch before here and here . Following service of a s56 notice on Kirklees the route was extensively repaired in 2018. It was then allowed to become badly overgrown in the summer 0f 2019. So much so that the area repaired became invisible and unwalkable within a year of those repairs (subsequently strimmed).

And In June 2019. Perhaps A little Too Green?

As can be seen from the top photo the path has a new problem in the form of a broken culvert beneath the surface flooding the path.

What this all neatly demonstrates is the need for regular inspection and cyclic maintenance of our public rights of way.

It’s good to report that within a few days of the new water feature being reported Kirklees have done some temporary work to drain the immediate problem and a permanent repair to the culvert below is now planned.

Excellent and thank you Kirklees 🙂
