Stratford Greenway

 

CAUTION!

Stratford Greenway Partial Closure for Tree Works
Monday 7th December to Friday 18th December (excluding weekends) 
Last year we carried out some tree thinning work around Seven Meadows Car Park.
As a continuation of this we are undertaking some further tree thinning between Seven Meadows Car Park and Milcote.
 
These trees were traditionally managed by the previous landowner on a coppice management regime and we are now continuing with this work, which will help with creating a varied/uneven age structure that is beneficial to wildlife.
This forms part of an ongoing program of maintenance of this popular recreation route.
The Greenway is closed between Seven Meadows Car Park and Milcote while tree thinning is carried out.
The closure will only be in force during weekdays, and there will be no restrictions on weekend access.
We appreciate that this will cause some inconvenience to regular users of the greenway but in the interests of their safety, we judge this to be the responsible course of action. By closing this section of the greenway for a fixed period we will limit disruption overall and allow the task to be completed swiftly and safely.

Please be aware of unstable ground due to burrowing animals..

“The Greenway is a high quality surfaced path suitable for cyclists, walkers and wheelchair users. It is part of the National Cycle Network, forming a five mile section of the West Midlands Cycle Route, which links Oxford to Derby via Birmingham. The Greenway is traffic free, but you will need to cross some minor roads along the way. Please remember that other cyclists, horseriders and walkers will be using the route and you should slow down as you approach them, and sound your bell if necessary.

Stratford Greenway is a permissive bridleway between Long Marston and Milcote and, other than two gates near to Seven Meadows and Milcote car parks, there are “horse boxes” constructed adjacent to the gates over which a bicycle can be lifted (they are about 250 mm high).”
