Thanks to the County Council for improving Whelan’s Way!

Some months ago Innsworth Parish Council highlighted to the County Council the very poor condition of Whelan’s Way (Ash Path) which runs between Innsworth and Churchdown.

Resurfacing of the path and cutting back of vegetation has now been done.  The standard is much improved, and thanks are due to the County Public Rights of Way Department for their very good work – and to County Councillors Phil Awford and Jack Williams for contributing their Highways Local monies to this project.

It’s now a pleasure to walk down this path!
