Brush Hill Access to get a Makeover

  |  Published: Oct 2nd 2013

Tired? We think the 85 steps at Brush Hill look tired too!  That’s why the Chiltern Society working together with the National Trails Office and Buckingham County Council are funding a step replacement project to improve a section of the Ridgeway Path National Trail at Brush Hill, near Princes Risborough, Buckinghamshire. The Pathway will remain open to walkers throughout the construction period.  The Society would ask all walkers to take note of the Health and Safety notices at the site and exercise additional care on the area of the steps.

Works will include the removal of the existing steps and root growth, fabrication of box work and steps, step infilling and compaction of crushed limestone. Works will require the use of machinery under the oversight of main contractor Jamie McNaught.  Site based project work commenced on Monday 23rd September with an anticipated completion in four weeks.

The project will significantly improve the quality of access to Brush Hill for local residents and enhance the enjoyment of users of the Ridgeway Path.

The Chiltern Society took over the maintenance and control of Brush Hill Local Nature Reserve in July 2013 we have regular work parties here which are advertised on our website  New volunteers always welcome!! Please contact David Kent, the Chiltern Society Brush Hill Site Co-Ordinator, on 07968 200287 if you have questions regarding site works.
