Hodnet to Marchamley Path – Work Begins

Thanks to the kind co-operation of Mr J Powell, at last weeks meeting of the Parish Council it proved possible to authorise the necessary local agreement to help progress this long mooted Permissive Path project. As a  result Shropshire Council were today (26th Feb) able to actually start work on its construction.
The potential usefulness of the project was confirmed in a residents questionnaire issued late in 2011. The main aim is to provide a safer walking link, behind the field hedge, over a distance of approx 400 metres where there is currently no roadside pavement.
The route can be viewed on this plan.
Depending upon what is required, future maintenance will be undertaken by either Shropshire Council, Hodnet Parish Council or the Hodnet Footpath Group. As regards the latter, it is hoped that some Marchamley residents with an interest in the future of this path will contact the Footpath Group and offer their assistance.
An official opening date will be announced shortly, but in the meantime please do not attempt to enter the works.
