Blog: Footpath between Ferry Boat and Pike & Eel

I tried to walk along the footpath from the Ferry Boat at Holywell to the Pike and Eel at Needingworth. A sign at the start of the path proclaimed it was part of the Ouse Valley Way, and according to my map, it should be. The footpath was rutted, wet and muddy. However, after about 10 minutes walking, avoiding the puddles, I had to stop as the path disappeared completely into a swathe of nettles and undergrowth that was impassable.

Is anyone responsible for keeping these public footpaths clear, or at least passable, because if they are, they’re not doing their job? Join the conversation on Shape Your Place
