Work to Improve Town Council Footpaths

Shrewsbury Town Council’s Countryside and Greenspace team has been busy repairing footpaths on its land.

Over the course of the winter, the team has continued to improve the Town Council’s footpath network on its sites across Shrewsbury.

Working with contractors R F Gardiners, footpaths have been improved at Mousecroft Community Woodland, Hillside Drive and the Old Canal, whilst the Countryside Team have completed the work in the Rea Brook Valley.

Matt Wilcoxon, countryside and greenspace manager, said: “Whilst we appreciate that a lot of the paths on our nature reserves are muddy at this time of year, we have tackled those paths which needed improvement work.

“We had only just completed the work on a new ‘grassblock’ path off our site at Whitehart in Meole Brace, when it was hit by some record flooding. However, we’ve checked the site and we’re pleased to say that it has held up unscathed.”

“We hope to continue with this work over the course of the year to improve the facilities on offer to our residents, especially at a time when more people are using our sites as part of their daily exercise.”
