A villager has reported that the Weir & associated footpaths have been closed by the Environment Agency. This effectively cuts the village in half with no access from the north to get to the precinct and no access to footpaths along the river from either side. 

The EA put up a diversion sign along the farmers field & through one of his gates. This was not agreed with the farmer and he has since closed, Locked & barbed wired the gate. 

Neither side of the village can get to the river by the normal route. 

I have written and rung the EA to register a complaint and would urge others to do so as well. There is no date for the works to be completed & the paths open again. 

Please pass this message on.
