Hodnet to Marchamley Path

As many passers by will have noticed, the path is largely complete and can now be used. Remaining work includes the erection of some signage and, where it is necessary to cross the road, dropping of kerbs – which will be carried out shortly by the SC highway contractors.

For the first time in decades, probably since the rapid growth of motor traffic in the 1960’s, it is now  possible to walk between the two villages in relative safety. As well as providing village connections, the path opens up some leisure walking routes; one of which could tie in with a current Hodnet Footpath Group walk where it reaches Long Lane – Walk leaflet No 2 – see their webpage for details
