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.
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."
Work will start on Monday 13th March until 5th May, and the path along the riverside will be closed to all pedestrians and cyclists from 18th April - diversions for National Cycle Network Route 27 will be in place.
