If you've ridden London Road (Pennine Bridleway below Stoodley Pike) you might have noticed that it's, quite frankly, broken. A digger/several diggers have churned it up beyond easy repair and made it a right arse in either direction. I've done some digging and discovered many things.
1. It was Northern Power Grid (formerly YEDL) contractors working on buried cables that inadvertently churned half a mile or so of Pennine Bridleway trail up in early autumn.
2. Although nothing appears to have been done, Calderdale Council have met with Northern Power Grid, who have stuck their hands up about and and they're committed to fixing it.
3. However, it won't be quick. Because of several things - like the repair having to be put out to tender, the site being a SSSI in places and, well, it being councils and contractors and utilities... there's going to be something done in the next four weeks to make it a little better and then it's going to be weather dependent for the proper, restorative work.
