Path and allotment improvement works on the Coppice continuing - the next phase.

A few years ago I began a campaign to improve the coppice. Significant path and other improvements have taken place since then and it is pleasing that one of our great natural areas so near to the town is being looked after.

Further funding has been approved by Biffa and the next stage of works will be begin next week. This will almost be a seamless continuation to improvements to the allotments leading up from Peel Park Avenue.

In addition to there will be path improvements including the paths on the summit which will also be resurfaced and in total 1.5 miles (2.5 km) of paths improved.

This will be in addition to around 1 mile (1.8km) of paths resurfaced on the other side of the Coppice last year (around Arden Hall ruins and leading up the Coppice from Plantation Road).

This has significantly improved access for all and made a walk around the Coppice easier and more pleasurable.
