Waddesdon Greenway update - June 2018

  |  Published: Jun 22nd 2018

The Waddesdon Greenway, the new accessible 4km pedestrian and cycling path linking Aylesbury Vale Parkway and Waddesdon Manor, funded by the Department for Transport, has made great progress over the past couple of months and is on track to open later this summer. 

Want to get involved in completing the project?  There is a volunteer work camp being held from 30 June – 6 July and we’d welcome any volunteers from individuals to companies and community groups to join us during the week.  Projects include steel bridge assembly, construction of a timber walkway into Waddesdon Manor Car Park, installation of posts & bollards, link paths into Waddesdon village, installation of sculptures, filling of sandbags and building of sandbag walls.  No previous experience is required and there will be jobs for children and adults of all ages.

If you are interested in volunteering for a day or more, please get in touch with Caroline at greenwaysandcycleroutes@gmail.com for more information.

There will be a celebration at the end of the work camp on Saturday 7th July starting with a walk from Aylesbury Vale Parkway at 2.00pm, celebratory cakes at the Waddesdon end of the path around 3.15pm and a walk back from Waddesdon to Aylesbury Vale Parkway leaving at 4pm.  All welcome – the path will be fully accessible for walkers, runners, cyclists, pushchairs and wheel chair users.  We would love to see as many future users of the path there as possible.
