Improving access to Camp’s Copse

Over the last few weeks the Townland Trust has undertaken a number of improvements to the section of the footpath that runs from near the top of Longdown Lane (just past the cricket ground), through the pasture field, then Camp’s Copse and the newly planted area. The path then goes on towards Braunston but not on land owned by the Townland Trust.

Three new metal kissing gates have been fitted, and three of the old stiles rebuilt to lower them and make them more accessible. Where the entries included plank bridges, sleepers have been replaced where needed and handrails fitted.

We are extremely grateful to our team of volunteers, Bob Wilson, Howard Smith, Steve Hamp and Wayne Foster, who have carried out the project for us. They have worked really hard and done a great job, particularly when the ground was very soggy back in March.
So please do have a walk down and enjoy the woods.
