Slick and very uneven entrance to stoke park estate (nearest road is Long Wood Meadows)

Reported via mobile in the Pavement Defect category anonymously at 13:26, Thu 26 November 2020

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

Between The Vench and Long Wood Meadows road there is a public foot path and an entrance way with a gate from the foot path to stoke park. My pictures show the entrance from both the field and the footpath.

This entrance is badly damaged and is becoming extremely difficult to navigate. The incline is made up of a large eroded lump of concrete and stones and several other broken slabs all sticking out at various angles combined with a lot of mud.

This entrance is used Monday to Friday for parents taking their small children aged 2 to 4 to Little Foxes forest school; we are also often carrying small babies down this path. This path is frequently used by dog walkers and ramblers also and is a high traffic area. It is becoming more and more treacherous and I believe it is only a matter of time until a member of the public has a nasty accident here. The incline itself is the worst part but the path into the field is swiftly turning into a mud bath also.

Please could this incline be repaired swiftly and perhaps wood bark chippings added to the muddy path?

Many many thanks for your time

  • This is getting worse and worse by the day.

    It is incredibly unsafe to navigate this. We have pregnant women, women carrying newborn babies, little toddlers who are just walking and preschoolers trying to navigate this 'path'.

    Many of us have had to resort to climbing the tree trunk which is also slick and a real challenge to get over.

    It is only a matter of time until someone falls trying to get through here and is injured!

    Please PLEASE can someone do something about this!

  • This is utterly hazardous and needs fixing promptly. It is a well used pathway by all ages and only a matter of time before there is an accident.

  • Honestly every time I go it gets more and more dangerous. Now the main path is pretty much unpassable, people are having to resort to going over the fallen tree, which means that area is becoming more eroded and hazardous and becoming even MORE difficult to navigate.

    Please, come down here and try to get through to the field yourself and see just how bad this is!
