Walkers are advised that the Old Railway Line Footpath and Bridleway will be closed for two to three weeks from today (Monday 31st October) as contractors work on extending the existing made up footpath.
The made-up surface will then extend as far as the Little Acre Fen Pocket Park and will result in a circular walk which will be available to walkers all year round whatever the weather.
Chatteris Town Council is funding the work, which will include repairs to the existing footpath, and is delighted that the link section is finally being created enhancing one of the most popular walks in Chatteris.
Update on the 24th November 2022:
Unfortunately the footpath is not open yet because the contractors have been seriously hampered by the wet weather. I can assure walkers that the contractors are proceeding as fast as they can but the work is very weather dependent.
As soon as the fencing is removed by the contractors and the gate re-installed the footpath will be open.
