Mud Trending

There has been talk of mud on twitter this weekend and I became very aware of  mud on the dog walk today …
Muddy as a play puddle
The area that looks like the pigs’ play puddle is the pedestrian route to Tesco from Chaunterell Way.
Muddy as a play puddle
The route was created when Tesco first opened in the early 1980s (corrected from 70s after comment). There is a picture in the library local studies section of a bridge at the Tesco end of the path being lowered into position in 1983. Not only is the path muddy a lot of the year, but the fence is falling down.

    dont think it belongs to tesco – the field next to it is council property. the part further on is tarmacced – i’m guessing they did that bit.
    a couple of years back there was talk of moving the patch across to the other stream that moves parallel – dont know why but it’s not happened.

    this riverside path has had virtually no maintainance since it was opened.
    it is now in such an awfull state that a new coat of gravel will not be enough. whats needed is a complete rebuild.
    a good project to benefit south Abingdon (on Ock?) residents.
    if this is part of the Ock valley walk, why has it been allowed to get into this state?

    it’s a dirt track – always has been, that;s what happens to dirt tracks in winter – and come summer it will be dry again.

    Yes Tesco’s was definately opened in the 1980’s – I remember it well. Used to shop at the Co-op before that. Be nice to be able to use the footpath it all year round – such a pretty walk.
