Footpath 14

The legal route of Footpath 14 across the water meadows has long been difficult to impossible to follow because of substantial shrub and tree growth, and was on our own ‘to do’ list. During 2016, it came up on the Norfolk County Council schedule of paths to be cut, so we queried whether the contractor would cut the legal line (alongside the school fence) or the line as walked (a winding path through the water meadow). We were asked for our advice and comment, so proposed that the legal line be cut. A recent walk there indicates that the whole line has now been very well cleared: we will ensure it stays that way.
