More people will be able to take in the postcard-esque sights of Chew Valley Lake after a new walking and cycling trail was opened by Metro Mayor Dan Norris. The mayor cut the ribbon at the trail to mark its official opening.
The 2.7km all-weather path on the northern section of the lake has been made possible thanks to a £1.1 million cash injection from the West of England Combined Authority, led by the Metro Mayor.
Whether you are walking or cycling, the new 840m off-road walking and cycle path between Woodford Lodge and Walley Court Road, which then continues across the dam and on towards Bishop Sutton, will make it easier to get out in the fresh air and enjoy the amazing countryside
Metro Mayor Dan Norris said: “Nothing beats taking in the gorgeous views of Chew Valley Lake and the stunning countryside and wildlife surrounding it. There’s a reason it has long been a firm favourite for generations of local people. I’m so proud that a million-pound cash injection from the West of England Combined Authority I lead has helped fund this brand-new walking and cycling trail which I know so many people in our region are looking forward to using. I have no doubt this will ensure Chew Valley Lake remains a go-to spot in the West of England to roam and enjoy”.
