At present, the route follows the existing bridlepath between Bowling Green Lane and North Cerney via Baunton and Perrott’s Brook.

Now, the group responsible for bringing the path up to the required standard is actively researching how it can carry on from North Cerney to Rendcomb.

Chair of the group Cllr Paul Hodgkinson says its important for the route to carry on as far as possible, “We undertook a survey of Rendcomb students a while back and there was a lot of support for a safer route for mountain bikes and walkers to avoid the A435 which is dangerous for pedestrians and cyclists.”

“As a group we’ve been talking to landowners and walking the possible routes from North Cerney, using Conigre Woods and possibly the Whiteway before dropping down into Rendcomb. However, it is still early days and we want to make sure everyone is happy with this before communicating to people. Having the consent of landowners is paramount.”
