The path is very overgrown leaving barely enough for people to pass, .

The first photo shows how vegetation is growing over the foot path both at head height and foot level leaving the path very narrow with barely space for one person to walk unhindered. It has not been cut back all year, and I don't remember it being cut back last year either. Neither edge of the path are visible and an elderly friend of mine fill into a hidden and overgrown grip, down the 18 inch high verge and into the path of oncoming traffic. The second photo shows the grip, which was completely hidden, now visible as I stood and cleared it. The incident could easily have been fatal, and it was very scary to witness. The path is well used by elderly ladies who are currently aiming to walk around the village in order to tackle loneliness. It is currently dangerous, and both sides of the footpath need urgently clearing.
