Footpath Improvements

The footpath from Harris Barton to Watley's End across the River Frome at Nightingale Bridges is used extensively, particularly by schoolchildren going to and from Winterbourne International Academy. Recent tree management work by Western Power together with the wet weather we have been experiencing had made the path virtually impassable to anyone not wearing wellington boots. 

Following a site visit by local councillors, representatives from Western Power and South Glos Streetcare, work has been carried out to resurface the path with a new layer of stones. It will enable schoolchildren from Frampton Cotterell and Coalpit Heath to be able to walk and cycle on this designated ‘Safer Route to School’ without getting so muddy. 

Work in progress
