This route was closed in the winter of 2013-14 when the bridge was damaged by floods. The bridge has since been removed completely. The Environment Agency do not want the bridge rebuilt in the same location and neither is there any funding available at the present time to replace it. The official alternative route is via Walsham Lock (see below).
Wisley Golf Club has agreed to the short-term use of its private bridge 50 metres downstream from Pigeonhouse Bridge, while the short length of path over the river is closed due to works at Walsham Weir to install a fish pass are in progress, although it is not clear how long this ‘short term’ period may be. The golf club has previously ruled out permanently using its bridge.
The Traffic Regulation Order is in force until 13 October 2018, but only applies if work is actually in progress. One odd thing is that the official public notice shows a 2-mile long diversion via Ripley Green then Ockham FP5 (see above) and the private bridge on the Wisley Golf Course.
For details of a SCC suggested alternative route email email@example.com. SCC intend to keep actual physical closure to a minimum with display signs prohibiting access.
The Traffic Regulation Order on Send FP61 has been renewed until March 2019. The official diversion route is northwards on the towpath and FP55 to Potters Lane, south on Potters Lane, FP60 to Send Church. Length is not stated, but estimated as 1.25 miles. (No part of Woking FP42 is directly affected by the TRO, but it is the logical continuation of Send FP61 on the Woking side of the River Wey).
The public inquiry into the Definitive Map Modification Order to upgrade this route to bridleway status began on 22nd May but was adjourned after one day due to the late submission of evidence. SCC has told our Footpath Secretary that the new evidence particularly related to the M25, height restrictions in the subway underneath it, and interpretation of no entry signs at either end.
If any member has any information about any of these matters, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A new date for the enquiry has yet to be fixed. The Ramblers has not been objecting, but could wish to appear at the enquiry if anything new of relevance to walkers comes to light.
This path passes in front of the RHS gardens, between the gardens and the car park. Two short lengths (160 metres and 100 metres) of the path have been closed by Traffic Regulation Order on grounds of public safety due to construction work, but in each case a minor diversion is in place. No cause for concern.
The SCC volunteer co-ordinator, has proposed a site meeting with our Footpath Secretary to look at a possible task on a path at Broad Street Common, to the west of Guildford. Stay tuned for further information.
