Footpath at Treuddyn

Published: 24/09/2014

A well used public footpath in Treuddyn has reopened following restoration works. The footpath which runs from the A5104 to St Mary’s Church, in the conservation area of Treuddyn, was damaged during the bad weather in March 2013 after a large tree collapsed and its roots destroyed 10-15m of path. Known locally as Church Walk, the popular route had been temporarily closed while works were carried out by a contractor on behalf of Flintshire County Council. Part of the works included an improved stile and dog latch and new fencing. Local County Councillor Carolyn Thomas said: “It’s great to see this pathway open again for footpath users to enjoy. Historically it’s a popular route and local people will be pleased that the repairs are finished and that it’s safe for walkers.” Councillor Bernie Attridge, Cabinet Member for Environment said: “Council officers do a valuable job keeping the County’s network of footpaths and cycle ways maintained for residents and visitors to enjoy Flintshire’s beautiful countryside. “Work is on-going to ensure that our paths remain open for leisure activities and I’m pleased to see another well-used route come back into use.” Photo caption L-R: Stuart Jones, Mary Pearson, Bryan Pearson, Meg the Dog, John Davies and Councillor Carolyn Thomas.
