Step out on a newly enhanced bridleway

The residents of Worcestershire are being urged to put their best foot forward as the plans to create a picturesque new bridleway are passed.

Worcestershire County Council's Countryside Service have diverted an existing bridleway down a new route which will allow horse-riders, walkers and cyclists to take in the best of the Teme Valley countryside.

BridlewayThe new, higher path will give the public the chance to explore the woodlands and rolling hills of Lower Sapey before enjoying historic landmarks such as the local ruins and St Bartholomew's Church; which has stood proud in it's rural home since the 12th century.

The new bridleway will offer a picturesque alternative to the existing route which took walkers down an enclosed path and alongside a property.

Lucy Flanagan, Worcestershire County Council, Countryside Access Mapping Orders Officers said: "Obviously I am delighted to see the diversion has been approved. We are fortunate to live in such a beautiful, rural county and this new bridleway will encourage everyone to enjoy the best that the Lower Sapey area has to offer."

The move has also earned recognition from national organisations with the British Horse Society fully supporting the plans as they feel it will be 'substantially more convenient for horse-riders'.

Mrs Bobbie Matulja, British Horse Society, County Access and Bridleways Officer, Worcestershire added: "The new route of the bridleway is much more convenient and easier to use for horse riders, and is a good improvement to the bridleway network in this beautiful part of Worcestershire."
