Countryside access, footpath maintenance and more
Bridges & boardwalks
It’s important that the beautiful British countryside can be enjoyed by everyone and is accessible all year round.
We’re currently working with a number of local authorities and The Wildlife Trusts to maintain and improve the accessibility of public footpaths and public right-of-ways. We are able to maintain public access to footpaths by clearing debris, strimming and cutting back hedges, as well as resurfacing pathways, building bridges over rivers and installing boardwalks over particularly soft or muddy ground.
We are also helping local authorities to increase the accessibility of countryside areas by replacing traditional stiles, kissing gates and self-closing gates. Both structures allow less mobile pedestrians, those with pushchairs and wheelchair users to access areas that they couldn’t previously.
Our team has recently worked on a project to encourage footpath use by installing signage. Using oak that we’ve felled, the team has created and installed high quality directional signs that are in keeping with their environment.
We’re happy to undertake countryside access work on an either an adhock or annual contract basis. For more information or to discuss your countryside access requirements please get in contact with us.
