145200Photo #145200This pavement is so narrow and it becomes very difficult to walk safely with a group, buggy, child or dog. There is no pavement on the opposite side of the road meaning if other people are walking towards you, on group has to step into the road to let the others pass. This is particularly dangerous because the road is on a bend and you can’t easily see oncoming cars.
The cars also drive fairly quickly through this area and since the path is so narrow, people are extremely close to fast moving traffic.
It would be great if the path was made a lot wider to allow people to pass around each other safely and walk easily with children and dogs

145122Photo #145122It is dangerous using the pavement here and further along the A321. It is not possible to push a double buggy and work is needed to restore what was, I think, the original width but has been allowed to narrow with vegetation. I have been forced to turn back as the speed of traffic precludes going into the road to get past particularly narrow sections.Track:
