Grove Wood boardwalk closure, approx 12 weeks from 3rd November
Over the coming weeks the timber walkway is being replaced with a wider gravel causeway to help improve access for all our visitors to enjoy.
Funded through the government’s Transforming Cities Fund, the construction works are expected to take up to 12 weeks during which time the path will be closed for safety. Please find alternative routes.
To limit the impact to our valuable wetland and woodland wildlife, construction has been programmed during the dormant winter months.
Once work is complete, the vegetation will quickly recover, and the area will be maintained to provide a more open wetland setting, good for dragonflies and other invertebrates. The regularly coppiced trees will continue to provide home and shelter for our nesting birds and mammals. The route will then form part of an alternative traffic-free cycle and pathway network.
Thank you for your continued support and understanding.
