From the Station Road end of "The Pathway" it is possible to see the street light - it gives off a passable sodium-orange glow.

From the Beaumont Rise end you can't see the lamp at all. It's completely dark! Even when all the leaves have gone (last winter), it is still difficult to see along the footpath.

The residents along "The Pathway" are all elderly and this makes it difficult and even scary to get home when it's dark. Especially now that the lamp at the North end has also failed - see report 40146884.

    Fixing the light at the end of The Pathway - 40146884 - has brought light to Beaumont Rise but has only lit about 10m of The Pathway itself.

    The additional 3 photos show 1. The fixed light 2. The dark 10 down The Pathway 3. The welcome orange light once you pass the overhanging tree.

    Please do something ASAP as its is very unpleasant walking home in the total dark.
