Good news at a dark time

In what has been a pretty grim December, Greenways has had a productive month.

On the Wye Valley Greenway, our contractors have completed the route north and south of the tunnel. We plan to open the route to the public in April. This work has been funded by the Rural Payments Agency LEADER Programme, to whom we are very grateful.

Our Wye Valley volunteers, socially distanced, installed fencing and a gate on the Bishton Lane ramp – thanks to Jeremy Cowen and team for coordinating this.

And at Ashton Court our volunteers have helped to restore the Grade 1 historic landscape created by Humphry Repton. Historic England asked us to create ‘windows’ in the tree belt, to open vistas from the Mansion to the grassland beyond. Thanks to Deb Erskine for coordinating this.
