Colne Valley Bridleway 197 Blocked By 2 Large Beech Trees

IMG_4404

I only walked this path a couple of days ago and all was good. However the wind & rain of Thursday night/Friday morning has brought 2 huge beech trees down and left them hanging over this popular bridleway.  The trees are at the Blake Lee Lane, Marsden end of the path.

It’s an odd situation as a line of beeches is growing on top of a high drystone retaining wall. They are now left hanging over the path,partly in the river and partly on top of the wall. They could of course move again or the wall may come down as well.

It has been reported.
