Aug 2020 – Tidenham, Gloucestershire

Railway Paths Ltd (RPL) have signed an agreement which will enable Defra to release a £63K grant to John Grimshaw’s ‘Greenways and Cycle Routes’ organisation to deal with the route of the trail near Tidenham where, some years ago, land slipped down the valley side and still blocks the old railway. John has developed a speciality for making previously intractable ex-railway routes happen, and currently all the signs for a new trail from Tintern to Chepstow are very positive. He has certainly got beyond historic wrangles over walkers and cyclists using Tidenham Tunnel. (James Winstanley)
