Madeley’s Green Spaces . . .

This new page aims to promote the green spaces within our area for all to enjoy . . .

 

Rough Park Bridleway Improvements . . .

During the last couple of weeks works have started on a local bridleway that sits inside the Rough Park nature reserve near to the paddocks. This section of the pathway has been severely damaged by rain water causing damage to the surface making it difficult to use. These works are being delivered jointly by Madeley Town Council and the Rights of Way team at Telford and Wrekin Council.

 

These pictures show the finished sections of the same bridleway after the improvements have been completed showing new edging boards and a cambered surface to allow the rain water to run off and help prevent further surface damage.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Madeley in Bloom  . . .

Some of the examples of the current floral display in Madeley high street this year helping to brighten up our local centre. Many thanks to all our high street neighbours who again this year came on board and supported us in delivering our Madeley in bloom scheme, it certainly adds some much needed cheer to the High Street and beyond.

New pole planters were recently installed along the footpath on Russell Road Village Green in Madeley and looked lovely in the sunshine.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Routes Around the Parish . . .

In recent weeks a number of our local walking/cycling routes across the parish received some new directional posts or finger posts as sometimes known.

These new additions form part of the ongoing commitment by Madeley Town Council to improve the local rights of way network across the parish which will aid visitors to the area in navigating there way around and helping them to find the local areas of interest such as the local shopping centre or the nearby housing estates and historical attractions.

Special thanks go to all at the Skills & Enterprise Hub located at the Bridges Business Park at Horsehay who did a fantastic job in making these on behalf of the Town Council, also thanks to Midland Playscape (local contractor) who installed all of the new posts in the chosen locations identified by the Environment Officer here at the Town Council.
