Footpath From Old Watling Street to A5 bus stop Heading towards island. Thick vegetation.

I walk this footpath regularly and its now full of stinging nettles and nearly impassable. People are actually walking down the side of the A5 instead of the footpath which is very dangerous. This needs cutting as soon as possible.
