The next twelve months..Part 2…Footpath Management

Below is a section of the Wom Brook Walk which passes close to the Giggetty.overgrown bush

This photograph shows the importance of regular management of the trees and bushes that border the Wom Brook Walk.  The Brook (not shown in this photograph) lies to the left of picture, and the view is looking west, downstream towards the Giggetty footbridge.

Due to the encroaching bush on the right of the footpath, walkers have gradually worn a path to the left of the original track, in order to avoid the rampant growth.

South Staffordshire Council,  in consultation with the Friends of Wom Brook have identified several sections of footpath requiring remedial work such as the example photographed above. Within the next few months, such sections of the Walk will be restored.
