Save Our Ruined Right Of Way in Winchcombe
This campaign has ended.
This petition is calling for Gloucestershire Public Rights of Way to take action over the destruction of a stone footpath, part of the Winchcombe Way, at Wadfield Farm, Winchcombe.
SORROW is petitioning for: The former stone footpath to be reinstated; the removal of dangerous and unnecessary barbed wire fencing; the removal of misleading signage; that action be taken over the erection of a stile; the erection of a low gateway; the re-siting of a footpath sign and the diversion of the path off Brockhampton Road, none of which has been done with RoW permission.
Why is this important?
This stretch of footpath from Winchcombe to Humblebee, is a much-used and popular path for walkers and visitors, both locally, nationally and internationally. It forms part of the 44-mile Winchcombe Way and is a part of a circular walking route to historic Belas Knap. It takes walkers through scenic Cotswolds and provides stunning views over Winchcombe and surrounding countryside. It formed part of the Cotswold Way National Trail until 2010 and became the Winchcombe Way in 2014.
How it will be delivered
We will email the signatures to Gloucestershire County Council's Principal Public Rights of Way Officer, Mr Alan Bently.
