Description

Summary of Project

Develop a free public walk around the picturesque parts of the estate and open up views of the house to encourage greater use of the estate

What is Proposed

We will make a new bridge across the stream (a 7 metre span) and refurbish the existing one, lay properly drained paths through normally boggy parts of the proposed walk. Local school children will help plant bulbs on the route. We hope to work with the probation service to clear significantly overgrown proportions. Write and erect information boards on flora & fauna.

Our aim is to encourage local residents to enjoy and experience the outdoors and visit some attractive but rarely used parts of the Milntown Estate. We would like to provide an informative and beautiful walk which will appeal to the whole family and, one which the local school children can be proud of what they have helped to create and come back year after year to watch it develop. As well as being educational for children, it will also promote fitness for the family.

Estimated Costs

New bridge (Steel framed 7 metre span) £7,000
4 x Information Boards £ 525 each
Bulbs and new plating £350
Supervision & paid labour £2,650

Total estimated costs £12,000
