A Dangerous Fallen Tree on Goldfield
A Dangerous Fallen Tree on Goldfield
The day before this was taken the Storm "Doris" had passed over the area bringing down many trees. A number, like this one, were old and covered with ivy, and were particularly vulnerable.
The fallen tree forms a bridge over an informal footpath, much used by dog walkers and children, which runs between a football field and a park area with swings. It is also not far from the footpath from Tring to Drayton Beachamp. Not much appears to be stopping the tree falling further as it is only supported six foot above the ground because its top branches had tangled with the branches of another, still standing, tree.
I have notified the Council and it will be interesting to see how quickly it is made safe.
Tring to Drayton Beauchamp Footpath :: SP9011
This is an ancient footpath that originally ran in a virtually straight line from the centre of Tring across open fields towards Drayton Beauchamp.
The Tring end, in Hertfordshire, reference number TT 48, is now part of the town and parts have been diverted in housing estates or along roads. In 2015 the last section in Tring ran across Sallery's field but will be rerouted when planned development takes place in this area.
The Buckinghamshire part passes Beeches Farm and Broadview Farm Farm, Farm. It is not clear whether, before the canal was built in 1797, it went directly to Drayton Beauchamp church or past Upper Farm to the village.
