Holmfirth Footpath 73 Gets A Makeover

It’s true to say that the old stone stile on Holmfirth Footpath 73 had let itself go a bit. It was falling over 25 years ago and the desperate addition of various posts and rails to add support to those droopy places and keep the sheep in also kept walkers out. In the end it was barely recognisable as a stile let alone usable.

Pleased to report that with the assistance of Kirklees Council the stile has had a makeover that would make Trinny & Susannah  weep. The disheveled,saggy and outdated stile has been transformed into a sleek stylish (pun intended) new gate.

Thank you 🙂

PathWatch is pleased to report that Holmfirth Footpath 165 has had a significant short back and sides to the laurel hedges which just about met in the middle. A new footpath sign has been installed and surface vegetation cut back too.

Thank you to Kirklees staff for this.
