The pandemic has forced all walkers to stay closer to home than usual. Therefore, it's all the more important that local paths are kept in good order. One of my and my partner's regular walks takes in this footpath across part of Manor Park Fields District Park on the way to our allotment. The before (left) and after (right) photos show the Manor Park Crescent end of the path. I reported the overgrowth to Sheffield Council's Public Rights of Way Unit. An email from them to the Council's Parks and Countryside Department brought prompt action.

Here is the opposite end of FP307 where it connects to Raynald Road, which received the same treatment as the first section.
