Bridging the Woolfold Gap
Monday 7 May will see a 1km cycle ride along a newly opened path at Woolfold in Bury. Walkers and horse riders will join recreational cyclists to travel along the refurbished path following the route of a former railway line, crossing the new bridge that replaces the Woolfold Gap viaduct.
The ride will finish at Greenmount Old School where there will be refreshments and a display showing the sculptures, wildlife and archaeology along the Kirklees Valley.
The project has been part of Sustrans’ Connect2 programme and is funded by the Big Lottery, Bury Council and Persimmon Homes.
Bury Council would like local organisations and clubs to have stalls at the Old School on 7 May. Contact Chris Wilkinson on 0161 253 5269.
The tape will be cut at 10.30am at the end of Darlington Close, Bury, (BL8 1UG). If you attend the opening by car, please respect the needs of local residents and do not park on Brandle Avenue or Darlington Close.
