  • Think you are referring to some slight heave of the tarmacked alley surface that is slightly visible towards one end?Could you be more specific please? This I would not regard as a high trip hazard I think its probably caused by adjoining tree roots to the fence/walls & mainly affects the very furtherest margins rather then the main path. The Alley Nuneham to Fitsharris is far worse with big bumps when gone over and raised cracking. Having said that Alleyway maintenance is very important and in the alley in question there is visible tardiness in overhanging tree branches that meet above head height forming a dark canopy that blocks out sunlight encouraging moss. Technically these privately owned branches ought not to be even 1" over hanging the top fence vertical. Any work needing doing on these alleyway paths falls either with The Council or whoever has taken over from the defunct AERE which might be no -body or a private contractor of some sort the one that mows the estates grass.

  • Having now personally examined the alley the only other feature that you may be talking about are the paving slabs at the Westernmost end where it emerges onto Bath Street? Granted these are a little settled and askew but very minor little more than 1cm at most . Granted they ought to be perfectly smooth and flat but large trees on either side make some settling inevitable.At the other end entrance to Nuneham there are a few minor 'humps'and one or two cracks but they are situated very marginally to the side. All in All its my opinion anyone taking reasonable care ought not to have a 'trip hazard'given the normal run of things. However I would agree that the situation couild be monitored every say 6 months or so?
