A council is continuing with their plans to improve footpaths within their community.

Cheadle Town Council is currently undertaking a project to improve footpaths by clearing overgrowth, repairing footbridges and stiles and installing new waymarkers.

Councillor Paulette Upton, who is the chair of the council’s Footpaths Committee, explained: “The Footpaths Committee of Cheadle Town Council has recently undertaken a project to improve some of the local footpaths.

“This has included clearing overgrowth, repairing footbridges and stiles and installing new waymarkers.

“We have also installed a lectern at Hales Hall Pool detailing a local walk that takes in points of historical interest. This has been funded by a grant from the Moorlands Partnership Board and the town council.”

She continued: “I would like to thank Mike Prince, Gary Bentley and Staffordshire County Council for their help as well as local landowners for their cooperation.

“Cheadle has over 60 footpaths so this is an ongoing project.”

Cllr Upton added: “Walking is good for physical and mental health and a full list of all local footpaths can be found on Staffordshire County Council’s Public Rights of Way map.

“Cheadle Town Council has produced a booklet detailing eight local circular walks (priced at £2) which can be obtained from the town council office at Tean Road, Cheadle Library and several shops on the High Street.

“Please remember to stick to the Countryside Code when walking: Keep to the waymarked paths; Leave farm gates as you find them; Keep dogs on a lead and close by.

“Pick up dog faeces – this can contain a parasitic infection that when left in grass that is grazed by livestock or mown for animal feed can cause death in sheep and stillbirth in cattle; and take your litter home.”
