Construction work started on the Dulcote Quarry link in September 2021. Somerset County Council have given their consent as landowners, Mendip Council have arranged the funding, and the contractors are local firm Goldings.
Greenways and Cycleroutes Limited has been working with the Strawberry Line Extension team to see the existing Strawberry Line from Yatton to Cheddar extended to Wells and beyond. The Strawberry Line team set things in motion, and attracted huge public interest in the route through fundraising and volunteering. Greenways joined them to advise on route planning and land negotiations and to make planning applications. Planning permission was secured in 2020.
Visit the Strawberry line website for more information.
If you would like to know more about the route or to volunteer, please contact our local volunteer coordinator Richard Jones firstname.lastname@example.org
