Footpath lost to vegetation and moss causing disintegration

Reported via iOS in the Footway or Footpath category by Cllr Karen Payne Ketton Ward at 12:28, Tue 5 November 2019

Sent to Rutland County Council 2 minutes later

The paths in the photos could originally accommodate 2 people walking abreast quite comfortably. They are now overgrown with grass and moss and most of the pathway has been lost. What is left behind is slippery due to the abundance of moss which is concerning in a village with elderly residents. The moss has also caused the pathway to disintegrate in many places creating uneven surfaces, again a concern for residents. The Parish Council would like the paths maintained and restored to their original width .
