New bridge built for path

Have your say

A PUBLIC footpath linking Common Lane with Alderson Close in Tickhill has re-opened after being closed for several months during the building of the new Pasture Way housing development.

The path originally led down from the A1(M) embankment and over an open agricultural field belonging to the estate of Lord Scarbrough.

But since the building of new houses by Bellway Homes it has been necessary to divert the footpath.

It now runs down the embankment, alongside the A1(M), across a newly installed wooden footbridge over the Slutwell Stream, crosses Pasture Way, then back over another wooden footbridge and out onto to Alderson Close.
