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
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,
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
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.

Imposing and elegant, the black poplar (Populus nigra) was once a...
