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???
