I went for a walk across the fields at the back of Smith Grove were they are putting in lots of new paths. As you can see in the picture some are more advanced than others as I found out when I sank down in the mud which came over my shoes. The paths will go from Minshull new Rd to Brookland grove and connect it to the town via the paths in Badger Ave. It is far from finished as its just rough stone at the moment and with so much water in the area its hard to make a good solid path.
Once completed it will be a nice country walk as they are putting more tree in the area as well. As with all these things the problem is kids will think its great to use these paths for motor bikes and it will make a great dirt track for them when they next steal a bike
