The NSI have been trying to get some money in to help pay for improvements to paths on the Bommie (the one with the stream). There is a lot to do – so we are asking which of the 5 possible improvements people are a priority for them and what they think. Let us know on firstname.lastname@example.org or use the Contact form on the website. Also on the Northern Slopes Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/groups/177126825777076
1 – Muriel’s steps – From Wedmore Vale to St Barnabas Church – steep and slippery when wet. Existing steps breaking up.
2 – Path and Slope – Stockwood Green (the big hill next to Stockwood Crescent) to St Barnabas church. Muddy especially when wet and slippery. Includes putting a bridge across the stream.
3 – Path from 105 Wedmore Vale (by the culvert with the grill on) to Stockwood Green. Gravel and geotextile base breaking up, steps need improvement. Can be slippery.
4 – Tunnel from Beckington Road to Stockwood Green. Partly surfaced – but surface needs to be extended as in the wet muddy and slippery either side.
5 – Tarmac steps down from Beckington Road. Steep and not easy to walk down – and hard to walk up!
