Popular cycle path closed

Cyclists and walkers in Chippenham are disappointed by the closure this week of the popular cycle path leading to Lacock.

Walkers, runners and cyclists using the North Wiltshire Rivers Route over the past week have been faced with a notice near Naish Hill stating the path would close.

The section of the path from Chippenham to Lacock is part of the longer Reading to Bath Sustrans route and Mr Weaving fears the whole route will have to be shut.

A spokesman for Wiltshire Council said that part of the path had to be closed because the lease expired.
