By leading a walk you are making a significant contribution to the success and enjoyment of the group. So, first of all - thank you. The leader takes on great responsibility, much, if not all of which, lies in common sense and being prepared. A walk can take on a different perspective when you have got a group of people behind you and so these notes have been prepared to help you. It is definitely worth remembering the adage: “better safe than sorry”!
If you come across a blocked or overgrown footpath, here are the links for reporting it. Reporting footpath problems Don't expect the council/National Park to have cleared it by the time of the walk, though!
