Sharp ridge in HIGH PAVEMENT that fronts the houses outside numbers 37 and 43 (the elevated footpath above the main road). I tripped and fell badly, injuring my shoulder and left knee. Two of the defects are exposed tree roots, the third over which I fell is a high ridge in the tarmac..I am 78 years old.The path is generally in a very bad state.

Path badly needs refurbishing. Subsidence is happening, thus 'wrinkling' the tarmac. Tree roots are showing as well. Low walls/fences bordering the small front gardens are leaning outwards and would cause kinjury if they fell.
