A STUNNING path crossing Puxton Moor has reopened after the hard work of volunteers from Woodspring Ramblers to install three new footbridges and eight pedestrian gates.

The walkway - located just off the A370, close to Weston - has been closed for the past 20 years.

Avon Wildlife Trust teamed up with North Somerset Council to provide the necessary footbridges and gates, and volunteers from the ramblers group spent three days installing them to reopen the pathway.

North Somerset Council’s executive member responsible for public rights of way, Elfan Ap Rees, said: “The ramblers volunteer group has carried out another first-rate job. It is unlikely it could have been reopened without their many hours of dedicated labour.

“Thanks to their hard work walkers can now once again enjoy spotting rare plants and ground nesting birds on Puxton Moor.”
