Blocked Path in Sheffield

The attached before and after photos show a footpath that leads from a housing estate close to where I live.

During lockdown I could only take a local walk and came across the fallen tree a few weeks ago. Emails flew back and forth between myself and Sheffield Council officers to find which department was responsible for clearance. It is not on the definitive map, so I knew it was not the PROW unit who I deal with normally.

Eventually, I found the right man who quickly got it cut up and removed. The path leads into green space, with ponds and ancient woodland beyond.
