It has been more than a week and the ‘temporary fence’ on Petersham Meadows is still in place. This fence blocks the Public Right of Way from the kissing gate in River Lane to Buccleuch Gardens. This footpath has been in continuous use for many years and can be found on early maps of Surrey.

For many people this is the most direct route from Petersham to Richmond and blocking this path is illegal. How long have you been using this path and has its closure impacted on you?
