Briars and blackthorn trees are overgrown in the old McCloskey site on the road up to the Ridgeway in Chilton. I had a briar cut my face just below my eye four days ago. They need cutting back before anyone else is injured, possibly seriously. A lot of mums and toddlers and cyclists use this road for recreational purposes. I do not know who owns this land and neither does Chilton Parish Council, which I find appalling.
