In case you accidentally walk out into the road...

This location is getting worse. The path is now inaccessible.

Absolutely gigantic oversize barriers lead to a very poor quality gravel path, before you can access the better quality asphalt path that takes you into the industrial estate. These need to be removed.

This small gate is all that stops people accessing a potential very quiet route from the A580, through the cemetery to the A6, beyond which they can get onto the Linnyshaw Loopline.

Zero maintenance here has caused the path to become completely overgrown.

An unreasonable layout here, probably due to the large gates. The path should be straight across, to avoid making these awkward turns.

I'm not sure why the path is laid out this way but why can't we just cycle in a straight line, rather than have to weave through these obstructions?
