Shelley’s Walk Improvements
Replacement of damaged cobbled church path (aka Shelley’s Walk) with reclaimed stone, realignment of the path and re-setting the cobbles alongside the path.
Work was complete in early summer 2023 to relay the path using reclaimed stone bordered by cobbles to reproduce the cobbles used on the original path.
This work was undertaken by a contractor working for Gloucestershire County Council (GCC), Public Rights of Way. Funding was provided predominantly by GCC but supplemented by generous grants from Lechlade Town Council and Lechlade Heritage and Development Trust. Our Parochial Church Council is grateful for the support given to enable this path to be made accessible by all users. The new surface also dovetails with plans to make the north porch the new, main entrance for the church once the reordering has been completed.
