Overgrown footpath

Reported via mobile in the Hedge problem category by Karen Homewood at 14:13, Tuesday 29 June 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

The footpath that runs from great gap to Ford end near Ivinghoe is very overgrown- I had to use it a few days ago whilst looking after my grandson- I needed to walk my dogs and had to use a pushchair for my grandson- I had to use a plastic raincover to protect my grandson from getting stung by nettles or scratched by brambles and also having a deluge of grass seeds from overgrown grass fall all over him. It was raining heavily at the time and I and the pushchair were soaked! -thank goodness for the rain cover, otherwise it would have been impossible and would have had to walk in road with two dogs and a pushchair! - not ideal along a road where lorries and cars do not observe the speed limit or weight restrictions!
