Wey Walk

EHDC grant leads path
the right Wey

A group planning a picturesque walk through the centre of Alton has taken a big step in the right direction thanks to a 15,000 grant from East Hampshire District Council.

The Alton and District Residents' Association (ADRA) hopes to plot a path which leads from Alton Train Station through the town following the flow of the River Wey.

The Wey Walk would be an attractive and accessible route through the town for walkers, cyclists and wheelchair users.

The 15,000 grant from EHDC will help the organisers appoint a project manager who, among other duties, will apply for the necessary funding to take the plan forward.

Louise Parker, of ADRA, said: The walk will open up the River Wey to allow the public to enjoy as it winds right through the town.

Some stretches of the river are well known but others, such as the part which runs through the Molson Coors site, have not been open to the public for a while and are really, really pretty.

The walk will lead residents and visitors to places of interest around the town, and encourage people to get out of their cars and get out and about to explore Alton.

Im delighted East Hampshire District Council has been able to offer us 15,000 to keep the project moving forward. This money will allow us to recruit a project manager who will be able turn this fantastic idea into a wonderful reality.

The walk will link Altons historical points of interest, such as the Allen Gallery and Curtis Museum, the Civil War battle site and Fanny Adams grave. It will also bring economic benefits to the town.

Two EHDC councillors, Cllr Glynis Watts and Cllr Adam Carew, have been particularly vocal in supporting the scheme.

Cllr Glynis Watts, EHDCs Portfolio Holder for Economic Development, said: This is a brilliant initiative and will benefit the town in so many ways.

The walk will draw people into Alton from around the area and take them right through the High Street, so I am sure that our local businesses will reap the rewards of that.

The 15,000 EHDC has provided will help propel this project toward the next crucial stage and I am thrilled we have been able to support it.
