COMPTON DANDO to PENSFORD
Somerset is renowned for overgrown path problems. It is a direct result of landowners who plant crops in fields with no attempt to providing a footpath and a County Council who lets them get away with it! With the rural economy so dependant on tourism you have to wonder why they aren't too bothered by a reputation for poor footpaths. Equally, it could be argued that BANES County residents get the paths they deserve, if they used them more and complained of poor access to the County Council things would get better.
