Ickworth's multi use trail: an update

Two boys and a man about to go cycling

In 2016 Ickworth Estate was selected as one of ten National Trust sites across the country to develop a new multi-use trail with investment from Sport England.

Over the past twelve months, we have worked with the planning department, local community and national bodies, as well as our tenants and other stakeholders, on submitting an application for the proposed multi-use trail which has received a huge amount of support. 

We have also had objections surrounding the route and impact on the landscape and we want to work with the planners and the invested organisations to alleviate these. Our priority and commitment is caring for the estate and as such we are completing further work on our application to ensure we can deliver the best outcome for this project that will encourage access to our estate whilst at the same time maintaining this beautiful and natural environment, forever for everyone.

We will update further on this project in 2018.
