Description

A tree has fallen partially blocking the navigation. Upon inspection a birds nest has been identified, as a result we are unable to move this tree until the end of nesting season. Bird nests are protected under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981.

Navigation is still possible, however please move slowly past this point. The tree will be addressed during our winter works programme.
