WALKING TRAIL LINKS
John Grimshaw and Associates
specialise in drawing up proposals for cycling and walking projects
which would make a real difference to local people. We prepare the
proposals and take them forward by completing negotiations for each
route, including all land matters, and by securing planning consents and
other formal agreements and licences. We work with numerous local
authorities, local campaigns and special interest groups.

suitable for families and leisure cyclists. The route meanders through
