Little Hob Moor path improvements

Money from the Dringhouses & Woodthorpe ward budget has paid for improvement work carried out on the footpath / cycle path that crosses Little Hob Moor towards Hob Moor Terrace.

One section of path was prone to being covered in mud as water ran off the hill towards the railway line. French drains have been installed and the affected section of path has been raised and resurfaced – pictured below.


The next area of path in need of attention is a section by the allotments, which is very badly potholed (pictured below).

Hob Moor graffiti blitz

Thanks to prompt action from City of York Council and Network Rail, graffiti at the Tadcaster Road entrance to the Hob Moor underpass has been dealt with.

We wish that Virgin Media were as quick – graffiti on their cabinets on Chaloners Road and Wains Road has been ignored despite having been reported last August!
