After 14 years, we finally have a safe footpath out of our village!
Enabled by funding from the EU LEADER project, together with a contribution from the Parish Council, construction by East Riding Highways started on May 8th and was completed in time for the grand opening!
The Cherry Burton Trod was formally opened on Sunday June 10th in glorious sunshine. It is a rural path on the verge of Etton Road and connects the village to the Hudson Way – the old railway line.
Before the trod, villagers had to walk on the 60mph road which is also on a National Cycling Route. Families with young children and those not able to leap onto the verge to avoid passing traffic were unable to walk to the Hudson Way or enjoy the scenic nature of Etton Road. Now families and the less agile are able to walk safely. And not just walking. We can now reach Field House Farm on foot to buy our farm fresh milk from Cherry View.
The trod was opened by Hazel Armstrong, Chair of the Hull & East Yorkshire Joint Local Access Forum ( JLAF) and was attended by Peter Ayling, President of the East Yorkshire and Derwent Area Ramblers, members of the Parish Council, and an enthusiastic group of Cherry Burton residents.
