The footpath along longbottom lane from the corner opposite where public footpath BEA/16/1 meets Longbottom Lane to the corner of Bottom Lane is unsafe for use. The footpath itself is covered in deep mud and leaves, so is very slippery and almost impossible to walk along. If you walk along the verge between the footpath and the road, this has been used so much that it is also muddy and slippery and is VERY close to the road that is used by high speed traffic - it would be very easy to slip and fall onto the road. With the temporary closure of footpath BEA/15/1, this is the ONLY walking route between Beaconsfield and Seer Green so is being very heavily used. There is a tarmac footpath under all the mud and leaves - please can these be cleared so that the footpath is useable.
