The first is of this section of footpath, on the outskirts of Sheffield on the Peak District NP boundary, taken last year. The second is of the same section this year, when Sheffield Council resurfaced it after I had lobbied them to do something about the mess.

Confined between a fence and the edge of Oldhay Brook, there was no way walkers could avoid the bog. Well used, I spoke to numerous people using the path from adjacent suburbs who all complained about the state of the path. After making a nuisance of myself, SCC finally agreed to do something and this is the result. The grid reference is SK 29838055 on the OL1 Dark Peak map.
