Pathways project

Together with Sport England we are upgrading and improving our circuit of pathways for the benefit of everyone who enjoys and cares for Saltram.

Saltram is already a popular place to walk, run, cycle and take a stroll with the dog. By upgrading the surface of our paths and signage we hope to enrich this experience and encourage more local people to get outdoors and active in a safe, traffic-free, green space.

Welcoming visitors

The new and improved pathways include;

  • 2km of improvements to existing paths and 1km of improvements to sections of route 27 on the National Cycle Network. Refreshments and toilets are already available.

  • A new area for families in a woodland space, suitable for children to learn to ride their bikes and gain confidence on them.

  • Improvements to existing routes into Saltram.

  • New wayfinding signage.

  • £146,944 investment at Saltram.

  • Part of a £4.25 million joint programme at ten National Trust properties in England in partnership with Sport England.

" Saltram provides a great opportunity to experience the natural environment, see some wildlife, and get healthy outdoors. We hope this project will allow more people to enjoy being active at Saltram."
