Hazard on the Henbury to Whirley Footpath

On December 28th 2017 we published an appeal by Henbury Parish Council asking local residents to report two deep boggy holes that had appeared on this footpath to Cheshire East Council Public Rights of Way department requesting urgent action to make the path safe. It's a very popular path and is used by many Whirley School pupils. An earlier report of this hazard by the Parish Council had failed to produce a result but we are delighted to report that, thanks to lots of footpath users E mailing and phoning the Cheshire East PROW Department, their contractor excavated the holes and filled them with coarse gravel on January 3rd 2018 to make them safe as these pictures show.

Bearing in mind that it was the Christmas / New Year period this was an amazingly quick response from CEC and it shows how effective PEOPLE POWER can be in getting things done. So although that bit of path is still muddy the risk of losing your wellies or breaking your ankle in a muddy hole has gone.

So a big THANK YOU to everyone who took the trouble to report the problem to CEC and feel free to chase them again if you find more footpath hazards in future.
