UPDATE January 2019


Network Rail have closed the crossing at the end of 2018. Apparently the NR risk assessment has shown this to be one of the most dangerous crossings in the country (based on number of users, age profile of users, lack of familiarity with the location etc.) A proposal by Heights of Abraham for construction of an alternative walking route alongside the existing road will cost in the order of £0.5M, which is unlikely to be paid by Network Rail.
