Right of way from Violet Street Aberaman North to the old Aberdare canal Head
Posted by Lewis on the 8th June 2014
This is a right of way (ROW) shown on the Rhondda Cynon Taf Councils definitive map but unfortunately because of a restriction it is imposable to walk this (ROW) it is blocked by deep water that has built up because of the lack of satisfactory land drainage.
The (ROW) starts at Violet Street Aberaman
North 202034 East 300970 Latitude 51.70808999 Longitude:- 3.43474604
To the Old Canal Head
North 202262 East 301420 Latitude 51.71039986 Longitude:- 3. 42818999
The (ROW) is obstructed where it passes under a bridge supporting the main Aberdare to Cardiff Railway line.
I do believe that RCTC are the landowners?
Landowner rights and responsibilities
I am sure the council were aware obstructing a ROW is a criminal offence.
The landowner must make good the footpath within 24 hours in all circumstances
I am informed the (ROW) has been blocked for months is this correct?

The local Council can take action over blocked or disputed private public rights of way. Anyone affected in this way, whether a landowner or a member of the public, should consult the public rights of way officer.
