The Easy Way Down~~~Monks Trod

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Four of the 150 year old cottages immediately at the bottom of the path have, sadly, been demolished because the foundations have been eroded by poorly drained land. In a matter hours, the patios, sheds and garden furniture at the front of these dwellings slipped down a 10 metre, almost vertical drop into the back yards of the houses below. The owners and general public were refused access to the footpath and dwellings which were abandoned within a few minutes of the land-slip. It took a group of demolition workers 4 weeks to remove the cottages, brick by brick. If you read my comments in THIS LINK it is possible to identify the cottages in question!
