Huddersfield FP60

I reported this overgrown footpath on the outskirts of Huddersfield. I also reported it to a contact I have in Huddersfield Ramblers. He passed it to a team in their Group that does path clearance.

I attempted to walk this footpath which connects to the towpath of the Broad Canal adjacent to the Huddersfield Town training ground. The photo shows that overhanging shrubbery rendered the path largely impassable even before the main growing season has commenced. I was forced to turn back.

A few days later I received an email from my Huddersfield Ramblers contact that two committed volunteers Adrian and Janice had cleared the footpath. A good example of collaborative working.
