One of the best-supported projects we initiated was to improve everyone’s accessibility to the footpaths around the villages. I for one didn’t know where most of them were and couldn’t find any information on them (some years ago a welcome pack was distributed with some of this information, but we don't have the electronic originals and arriving in the Parish over 5 years ago I didn't receive one). I found it a great way to discover more about where I live and meet other parishioners.
This project is split into two parts:
A) Making available the information on the ‘Idmiston Parish Rights of Way’ in a useful format. We have a document, in printed form only, which lists the rights of way and separately a detailed map, which marks them out – but they are not together and not easily accessible.
B) Combining these Rights of Way (and the useful descriptive local information) to create walks that people can do and, wherever possible, make them circular.
The first of these walks is ready and included below for parishioner's use.
