15th May 2020: The clearance work on the  dangerous Ash trees along the Lower Horseshoe footpath is now complete. For an explanation of why we had to carry out this work, please go here. Please look out for loose soil and tree debris along the path and to avoid accidents, please do not climb on the timber stacks - many thanks.
