VILLAGERS in Barrow Gurney are delighted to be able to use a new footpath in the parish.
The 300m section of footpath between Hobbs Lane and Naish Lane, alongside the A38, is the first step in a campaign to improve pedestrian access around the village.
The aim of the path is to link the community and allow better access to the new bus stop for the Airport Flyer.
Funding for the £20,000 scheme came from the Airport Community Fund, North Somerset Council and Cemex, which runs Freeman’s Quarry.
The need for more footpaths in the parish was raised at a public consultation last Autumn.
