Part of Marriott's Way is to close for essential maintenance work later this month. 

The work on the path at Lenwade will start on Monday, November 22, and is expected to take four weeks.

Stage one will allow for the felling of ash trees near Brickwater Lane as well as resurfacing and drainage work 200 metres west of Heath Lane.

Stage two will focus on resurfacing and drainage work 200 metres southeast of Heath Lane.

The surface of the footpath will be scraped and replaced with an unsealed granite alternative.

New drainage will be installed to ensure the path doesn't become waterlogged during periods of heavy rain.

Some bollards will be removed to improve access for walkers but restrict it for vehicles.

Marriott's Way will be closed where the work is taking place and there will be a diversion.
