Part of the River Avon Path through Crews Hole has been closed to pedestrians and cyclists since the end of 2013 due to a collapsing wall.
Work has started today (13th April 2015) on repairs to the wall and if the works go to plan the path should be open by the end of June (and possibly earlier).
Update 27 May
The path is now open. Work to repair the wall is complete and the path has been cleared of bramble.
St Anne’s footbridge needs to be closed for 12 weeks for deck repairs, this will start on Tuesday 2nd June.
The collapsing wall is owned by the owner of the industrial estate not Bowland Stone or the Council and it is the landowner who is organising the work having agreed the method of construction and design with Council engineers.
The section of path will remain closed with temporary fences at the footbridge and at Netham until the works are complete. Alternative routes are available for pedestrians or cyclists over the footbridge and along the path on the other side of the river, or via the road (see map below). If you find the barriers have been removed please call the Council on 0117 922 2050.
The path is open from the St Anne’s footbridge towards Conham.
