Footpath improvements carried out in Golant Downs near Fowey
Work has begun on a project to improve a popular public footpath at Golant Downs near Fowey.
CORMAC Solutions and St Sampson Parish Council will be working together on the project which involves local volunteer group, The Downers, replacing 80 hardwood step boards to ensure the continued safety of walkers along the footpath.
The Downers are a group of like-minded individuals who meet up each Friday morning on the Downs and ensure the main and upper paths usable throughout the year.
The volunteer task force have carried out remedial work on the footpath while CORMAC staff have overseen the consultation process and implementation of the scheme.
