Colwyn Bay Footpaths. To THE EDITOR OF THE Weekly News. Sir,-A correspondent in yours of last week brought up the question of footpaths. I only wish, it was noticed by our Surveyor as was the case twelve months ago. Being a fine afternoon, I decided to visit the Flagstaff, where the Gorsedd is to be held next year. I started up Llewelyn-road, and notioedi with some surprise a great privet hedge extend- ing half a. yard or so for a considerable distance on to. the parapet, and thus preventing its free use to a great extent by the public. The unusual growth betrays its intrusion for a long period. I made straight for the Woods, and after some stiff climbing, landed near the Post Office on the top only to find I had missed my way by not turning at the right place in. the woodland walk to the Four Crosses." If a directing board was fixed where I have indicated it would be a great boon to many hundreds that may come next year to the Gor- sedd only to be led astray from it, if this is not attended to. I understand great numbers of strangers, wan- der in the direction I took every year from just the same cause. However, I wended my way to (the right up the road and was rewarded by a fine view of ithe Flagstaff) on lower ground: u. considerable distance away to the north. Pass- ing through a gate at the end of this road, I negotiated a well-defined, path on my right, leading towards a house in the hollow and ex- tending further Iby the roadway. 'Here I was effectually stopped, and I would like to know the reason why. It appears this was has been ini constant use for ages by the public, because it led to cot- tages (one now in ruins and another replaced by the house I mention, known until recently as Brynigwynledd), also to a well—the only source of water supply in the locality, and onwards by the road tOo the old residences, thus showing that the portion now shut off by gates was used in, each direction, time out of mind. I hope the town's Surveyor or Council or the public, will make some effort to have this "right of way verified if possible. It is highly important for the community that paths should be preserved, more especially in a dis- trict that possesses so much natural: beauty, and depends so largely for its prosperity on the number of visitors and new residents every year. With the National Eisteddfod close upon us and every season bringing its attractions- that vie with each other in seaside resorts elsewhere, we cannot afford to deny free access in the heautifu neighbourhood of Colwyn Bay. There are other paths much neglected.—I am, &c., A RESIDENT.
