Wall collapse causes footpath closure

A SECTION of a popular Clevedon footpath has been closed off after a wall collapsed during bad weather.

The stone wall running alongside the path leading from Dial Hill Road and the Zig Zag to Hill Road gave way during high winds and heavy rain on yesterday (Wed), leaving the steps along it completely blocked by earth and rubble.

North Somerset Council closed the affected section for safety reasons and it will remain closed until the owner of the wall has been identified and repair works are made.

It is a privately owned footpath which is not the responsibility of the unitary authority.

People can still access Hill Road from Dial Hill Road by following the path where it forks in a separate direction.
