Temporary Closure of Footpath

Footpath 23b at Knowle in Newick Lane (that leads to Meres Farm, Meres Lane in Five Ashes) has been temporarily closed for two weeks after a fire caused asbestos roofing to explode causing material to be spread over a wide area including the footpath. East Sussex County Council has therefore taken the measure of closing the path until the clear-up operation is completed.
