We moored on the bend yesterday and walked along the footpath,almost impassable with thistles and other spiky plants.A fortune spent on gravelling the path and almost impassable,in another year you won't be able to pass along it at all.All the fishing platforms overgrown too because no one can get to them.A terrible thing to happen to what were once lovely moorings

I guess the Parish Council must be responsible for the footpath and moorings. I'm sure the works cost a fair amount of money so to let them grow over so badly is not good. It's nice to see nature taking hold again but not to the point of the path being unusable, which it will be if nothing is done. Trouble is, if it is mentioned to the council, they will probably cut it all back to nothing again! At least it looks wild at the moment.

"I guess the Parish Council must be responsible for the footpath and moorings."

I understood it was the Environment Agency's responsibility.

My guess is that, like a number of footpaths near us in Ludham, it all get a full-on cutting once a year by the EA. I think BAM actually do it.
