FOBB would like to establish the local support to upgrade the footpath adjacent to the River Bollin on
its approach to Priory Bridge, (see map below).

Those of you who regularly use this section of footpath will be aware that, just like the Grange Road
riverside path before its up-grade, this section becomes a quagmire during the winter months, and after heavy rain more generally.

Full year access to 3-mile loop from Bowdon Vale. In addition to improving the path, we propose to replace the rotting stiles with kissing gates, thus eliminating these dangerous obstacles and making access easier to those with limited mobility.


Trafford Council are not prepared to take action and therefore FOBB have approached Veolia Environment Trust to fund this ambitious project. In order to be considered for 95% funding we need to prove local support by engaging the maximum number of local residents to:

  • Attend a public meeting*
  • Complete a survey
  • Raise 5% of the project cost (£900)
