Footpaths & Highways

Public footpaths within Kinnersley & District Group parishes total 42km. We have 4 Parish Footpath Officers – PFO’s – one for each parish

This is a voluntary role, for which the parish council is very grateful. PFO’s aim to walk their local footpaths regularly, and investigate and report any problems
