Bridleway Update

News on the Farndon – Eydon Bridleway Closure

JOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAoe Pitt, our Footpath Warden, has provided an update on the progress of re-opening the Farndon – Eydon Bridleway bridge:-

The bridleway has been closed for some time now because the bridge over the River Cherwell by the site of the former Burnt Mill was surveyed and found to be unsafe.

The landowner has now allowed a “ opens in a new windowpermissive path” for walkers and it is now possible once again to walk up to Eydon along Butterfly Lane using a diversion across his land and via a private bridge that he has built.

Discussions are now on-going with the County Council with the possibility of re-routing the bridleway.

This is very good news, so that when the weather improves, I hope walkers will once again take advantage of this excellent walk between Farndon & Eydon.
