                             Claife Community Bridleway between Near Sawrey and Hawkshead

Hurrah! Good News! The path can be used even though it is not quite finished!

Please be aware that there will be some ongoing work which may occasionally interfere with access.

There are a few snagging issues to sort out and a large tree to remove to aid the sight line of, and from, the path exit south of High Crag...plus some additional information signage to put in place including location and route maps which will alert people to the incomplete nature of the path. Yes, unfortunately there are some "on road sections".

We very much hope that as the benefits of providing pedestrians and young cyclists with a safer, off road, path become apparent to landowners, additional sections will be added. To complete the route, now that would really be something!

So many of you have said how delighted you are to see a path in this location and these positive comments are very much appreciated by everyone involved in the planning and construction of the path.

 Thanks are due to the National Trust, and the Lake District National Park Authority, for their financial and practical support; South Lakeland District Council and Claife Parish Council for financial support; the National Trust and Claife Parish Council for making their land available for the path's location; Gary Dixon, who farms the fields that the path goes through, for putting up with the inconvenience which has gone on longer than it should have because of the exceptionally wet weather; Paul Wrobel for volunteering and giving his unstinting commitment to helping me to get the job done; the contractors who built it; and, all the residents of Claife Parish, who in their responses to the Community Questionnaire in 2012 and the resulting Community Plan 2013, indicated overwhelmingly their desire and support for an off road route along the B5285 between Near Sawrey and Hawkshead.
