Following the Mendip Planning Board meeting (17 Feb) which expressed concern about the potential loss of the Wallbridge Adderwell Path, the landowners (the Sutton family) have partially removed the barrier at the Retreat end of the path. A new notice says “Private Property: Landowner permission granted for foot traffic only”. This is most welcome news for the many walkers who enjoy this path.
The barriers at the Adderwell end of the path remain (although they do not prevent access). Frome Town Council are requesting a meeting with the owners to discuss the Public Right of Way claim.
