Footpath 1 is the path which runs from near the zebra crossing in the village centre up to Losehill Farm, connecting with the onwards paths up Lose Hill, and with the path to Castleton via Losehill Hall. As such it is a key route both for residents and for visitors to the village. With winter storms and spring rain it is prone to getting extremely muddy. As residents will have noticed, we have undertaken extensive work on Footpath 1 since last summer to address the worst areas of mud and puddles. Many thanks to all those councillors and other volunteers whose work contributed to these efforts. We will be continuing to work to render footpaths useable in the coming months.
