Heritage Walking and Cycling Routes

One of the features of recent consultations has been residents’ desire for better connections between the town, residential areas and the countryside, allowing people more opportunities for exercise or to walk / cycle to work. With the strong local railway heritage there are a number of opportunities to improve walking and cycling routes.

To accompany this improvement it is proposed to incorporate a programme of signage leading people to the town and surrounding villages. There will also be a town centre signage project within the town which links with the character and specialist retail opportunities that exist.
