Via - Notts County Council are asking local residents to get in touch on 0115 977 4802 if they are aware of any public footpaths on arable land in the parish that are being obstructed by crops.
Senior Rights of Way Officer for the joint partnership, Jane Baines, is anxious to ensure that obstructions do not take place and says they will write to any farmers who do not heed requests to rectify the position where blockages are allowed to occur.
The County Council say that where obstructions do occur they will ask the farmers to remove them or the County Council will carry out the work and charge the farmer for it.

About Widmerpool Village
It is one of Nottinghamshire's oldest settlements and has always been an estate village, there being a 'Widmerpool' family as far back as 1283, including in 1333 a John de Widmerpool, who attended a Parliament in York.
The estate, having changed hands several times, was finally broken up in the 1950s. Eventually, Widmerpool Hall was renovated and divided into a number of apartments.
