  • Just tried to walk down this path and was going to report but see it has already been done. Weeds are taller than me and completely covering path in some areas

  • The yellow footpath from Uppingham to Preston is severely overgrown with weeds, grass and nettles, ouch! making it impossible to socially distancing when passing other walkers or runners without going into the road. This path is usually regularly used by dog walkers and runners and would benefit by a wider cut but still leaving a large biodiversity verge.
