On Saturday, 24 September, Limpsfield Parish Council launched the new Limpsfield Way circular walk and community cycle route.
The initiative consists of a 4.5 mile circular walk and a ‘there and back’ cycle route, providing safe passage for all ages and abilities between Limpsfield Village and Limpsfield Chart. A natural play area has also been created, and wooden history boards, featuring interesting information about the area, have been placed along the pathway.
Parish council chairman John Thompson cut the ribbon to open the route, with a group of cyclists, led by Jon Rayner from Limpsfield Fitness, making the inaugural cycle from The Bull Inn to The Carpenter's Arms.
Cllr Ann Osborn fronted the project:
"Our aim was to create a better link between the Chart and Limpsfield Village for cyclists and walkers. We will keep improving it over winter as muddy patches appear, and we hope to get lots of feedback from everyone who uses both the walk and the cycle path.”
The parish council would like to thank the following people and organisations for their help in making this happen: Surrey County Council (whose Your Fund Surrey funded the project), Tandridge District Council, the Friends of Limpsfield Common, East Surrey Walkers, the National Trust, Limpsfield Fitness, Barry Chandler, John Tolley, Richard Spiller, Deborah Langton, The Bull and The Carpenter's Arms.
