.Footpath Maintenance.

Tuesday 23 May 2017

Our team combined again with Derbyshire Wildlife Trust to further improve the Ecclesbourne Way, tackling three crossings along the Duffield Meadows section. Two stiles and one footbridge were modified and made more user friendly.

As part of our project with Derbyshire Wildlife Trust, the Ecclesbourne Way leaflet is being updated and soon to be reprinted.

The new version includes a full OS map, revised text and the new extension onto Alport Height.

It is now on the Ecclesbourne Way website, for testing:


It can be accessed only through this link, not from the main website (as it is a test version).

It is scheduled for printing in early June.

We would like members of our group to walk the route from this revision, to test its accuracy (or otherwise).
