Brailes Footpath Group: Autumn reflection

We’ve had a productive few months over summer: lots of stile & bridge crossing repairs, path (brambles) clearing and more recently installation of a few gates in place of stiles.  Our chairman (Steve Self) has built a successful relationship with the County Council RoW team and has since secured a number of gates for installation where we have identified a need.  Our aim has been to improve ‘access for all’, in particular with a view to ensuring the 3 Hills Walk is stile-free in the future.

It’s not just Brailes that is active too, there are Sutton-under-Brailes volunteers and we have supported them in recent working parties.

Another area we have invested time is the Footpath Map we created last year.  It is available free to download below.  Larger versions are viewable on the Footpath Noticeboard outside the Village Hall + also hanging in the garden of the George Inn.

In September we celebrated the life of former group member Christopher Gummer who passed away last year, a plaque has been erected on Castle Hill to remember him.
