Steep pathway known as Jacobs Ladder leading up from Claremont Walk

Reported via mobile in the Excessive or dangerous littering category anonymously at 07:35, Tue 4 October 2022

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council 3 days, 3 hours, 27 minutes later. Council ref: 3866162.

The photos only show the bottom of the path at the point where vegetation is severely narrowing the pathway, making it single file where it used to be double file. Some of this is from a private property which is due to be pruned in December, but the other side is now dense bramble which has grown up over the pandemic and now causes problems. The remainder of the path leads through the woodland and is an extremely steep pathway. This needs sweeping of beech nuts and the encroaching ivy cutting back.

This path leads to two schools and is heavily used, please make it an appealing option for parents to walk to school.

It needs a team to cut back the overgrowth the path to be swept and the path scraped of mud Thank you

  • This is the top of the pathway - as you can see the handrail is unusable and will require a full cut back. Thanks

  • Now the clocks have changed I have been reminded that the lowest two steps on this pathway are impossible to see rom late afternoon onwards because the bramble overgrowth shades the street light which is situated in Claremont Walk. Please can a team look at this and bear it in mind when trimming the overgrowth - hard to imagine in the daylight

  • Here are some photos. One shows a dead, ivy covered branch hanging in front of the light that is actually in the woods. The other is taken from he footpath and hopefully demonstrates that the wall and railing is covered by brambles and small shrubs. The impact on the lighting is that the footpath is pitch black at the bottom where there are steps of unequal depth and distance- not easy to navigate. I really hope this can be resolved soon so we can all have a safe winter
