For three years now the Gainsborough Trail Team along with Babergh District Council have been battling away to clear the obstacles to extending the Gainsborough Trail into Great Cornard.
It is not about money and the design for the bridge to go over the brook near Cornard Weir was completed long ago.
The problem has been about access to a small piece of land on the Sudbury side of the brook. We thought it was all agreed in 2013 and then the owner’s of the land changed their mind.
We hope the matter will be concluded very shortly.
This will then allow us to complete the Great Cornard section, the route of which was planned 2 years ago. More news soon … we hope!
