Popular footpath between Millheugh and Chatelherault re-opens
A popular South Lanarkshire walk has been made safe following a landslip.
A landslip along the main footpath Millheugh and Chatelherault has had £10,000 of improvements made by council contractor Joseph Leckie & Sons, with funding secured from the council’s Facilities, Waste & Grounds Service and the Clyde & Avon Valleys Landscape Partnership.
Commenting on the re-opening of the walkway Councillor Hamish Stewart, Chair of Community Services Committee said: “This is an important part of our walkway and I am delighted that, with support from The Clyde and Avon Valley Landscape Partnership, the pathway has been repaired and improved to allow everyone, once again, to enjoy our 10 miles of beautiful ancient woodland walks with their colourful wildflowers and wonderful views.”
Clyde and Avon Valley Landscape Partnership Programme Manager, Maggie Botham, commented: “This repair was a vital link to help local people enjoy the beautiful Avon valley all the way to Chatelherault. This project is just one of many, providing more opportunities for people to get out and about and learn about their local area, as well as help conserve it into the future. We would encourage people with an interest in the landscape, nature or history of the Clyde and Avon Valleys to get in touch and sign up to our newsletter to see the range of free opportunities, events and training on offer.”
