Community Woodland Path Improvement

Home » Newsroom » Community Woodland Path Improvement

Walking through the Community Woodland today I was able to use for the first time
the new pathway which currently extends through the the woodland from Hockenhull Lane north to Townfield Lane

Community Woodland


Walkers now have a wide, sinuous pathway with a hardcore surface, perfect for wheelchair use

What an improvement from our Green Flag winning Community Woodland!

 

 

The contractors, who are W.E Parsons, and the Community Woodland Trust,

Community Woodland

have put much thought into the path's design, it's shape and camber and the materials used.
It has a hardcore surface, good drainage, and even extends all around the bench which is ideal for those with pushchairs. Also the paths are nicely edged with timber to stop the gravel spreading out over time

 

Other features include the widening of the path at the gates at either end of the woodland path for ease of access for wheelchairs and buggies, and, the removal of all potential trip hazards

Work has only just started on the path in the southern arm of Tarvin Community Woodland, which stretches from Hockenhull Lane to Broomheath Lane. This area is closed to the public whilst the contractors build a very long length of pathway.

Robin Jones of the Community Woodland has requested that all members of the public please keep clear of this area at all times for their own safety and that of the construction team
