The Beach footpath

Our current project is the re-surfacing of the well-used footpath between the Beach estate and the Beach Road.

This is being done in conjunction with Cumbria County Council, and we have to find £4,000 for our 50% share.

We are currently applying to the "Jewson Building better communities" fund for a grant to help in this.

Although looking lush and green, the surface is uneven, and there is a water-worn gulley in the middle. Several efforts to achieve a long-term solution with hardcore has failed due to water erosion and heavy usage.

It is hoped to produce an engineered path using hardcore covered with "Flexi-pave" which is a tough recycled plastic mat put on the surface.
