The two photos in the picture where taken 3 months apart. From a video I took on the 24/06/2020 and 23/09/2020, of the path going through the Cowdenbeath Golf Course at the Lochgelly end of the path.

The top photo you can see is in not to bad condition which was taken on 24/06/2020 and the bottom photo of the same part of the path which is in a mess was taken 3 months later on 23/09/2020.

What happened to the path in the 3 months between taking the 2 photos and is it going to be repaired???

    Hi the photo of the path that has been dug up looks like a pipe is going to go in there.

    I’m just guessing here, but I’ve seen this on a lot of paths around Fife…… I think it is the effects of the rain erosion, after we had the megastorm in Aug 2020. Lots of paths became torrents of water for an hour or two, the loose grit on top eroding bigger ang bigger bits underneath, until trenches up to a foot or more deep were created.

    Hi, I work for on the roads and can tell you that it is erosion. I know it looks like it deteriorated too quickly, but Andy is correct. Last years was on of the wettest in recent times and all that water has a devastating effect. You only need to look at all the potholes in the roads and the news stories about landslips. That coupled with Covid restrictions means that problems are appearing quicker, but taking longer to fix. Do you know who owns the land? If the path belongs to the golf course you should report it to them in case they’re not aware of it.
