Gordano Greenway linking Clevedon and Portishead

The Gordano Greenway initiative has been set up as a Weston-in-Gordano Parish Council community project to help the increasingly isolated residents who live in the villages of Walton-in-Gordano, Weston-in-Gordano and North Weston.

The aim of this project is to be able provide residents, and visitors alike, with an alternative transport route, other than having to negotiate the increasingly busy B3124. Walkers, cyclists and equestrians all have a right to safe passage to either Clevedon or Portishead without having to resort to using a motor vehicle.

The Weston-in-Gordano Parish Council has grown concerned that the community is becoming increasingly isolated as a result of the huge increase of traffic on the B3124. As a result they held talks with John Grimshaw, the founder of the cycle charity Sustrans. John quickly put together a route plan that would provide an alternative cross valley route that would take walkers, cyclists and equestrians off of the busy road
