Kingswood Ramblers

Footpath Clearance Updates

During 2015 a group of our ramblers worked with South Gloucestershire Council to replace stiles with kissing gates to make our footpaths more user friendly.

Our footpath clearance team have also cleared several badly overgrown footpaths in the local area during 2015 to make them more accessible.
Work has already begun on footpath clearance in 2016. See contact details on the Home page.

On 8th October a team cleared a footpath at Webbs Heath which was very overgrown. They also managed to reinstate the footpath by putting back the barbed wire which had been knocked down by walkers - not Ramblers!

On 19th March 2016 a group of Kingswood volunteers cleared a path at Shortwood Golf Course removing large amounts of dogwood to reinstate the correct route and keep walkers off the golf course. A great deal of rubbish was also removed. The second path cleared was at Siston where the path was totally blocked. Now walkers are able to walk from Siston to join the Dramway on the opposite side of a roundabout.

In January 2016 a badly overgrown path that links the Community Forest Path with footpaths leading to Pucklechurch was cleared. Well done to all the team. See photos below:
