Oxfordshire County Council reports today that work on improving the towpath upstream of Wallingford Bridge has been completed.
The path, alongside the castle’s meadows known as Queen’s Arbour and Castle Medow, was often slippery and wet weather halted work four times since last autumn.Â
Councillor Roger Belson, Oxfordshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Sustainable Development, said: â€œIâ€™m delighted to say the work has now been completed and that local people will be able to use this stretch of the towpath whatever the weather.
Work started on 1 July and cost Â£11,000.
A range of agencies contributed to the county council project, including the Trust for Oxfordshireâ€™s Environment, the Environment Agency, South Oxfordshire District Council and tenants who granted access to the site across their land.
