Lancashire County Council has advised that the section of footpath in Broughton (pictured below), which has been closed since 5th October whilst works are carried out, will remain closed for a longer period. This is necessary due to danger to the public because of the condition of the footpath, which has suffered from erosion, fallen trees, damaged fencing and embankments that have subsided. The closure order will remain in place until 8th November 2018 - or until the path is repaired, if sooner.

Access for pedestrians to any premises situated on or adjacent to the footpath will be maintained at all times.

Footpath Closure - Broughton - 5 October 17 for 5 weeks
