Charlbury - A Cotswolds Gateway Town

We have just had confirmation that bids for funding from the Cotswolds Conservation Board and Great Western Railway have been successful. This means that Charlbury will officially be a Cotswold Gateway Town.
In the first place we will get new information boards at the station and in the Town.
The other aspect is to improve walking and cycling routes from Charlbury to promote tourism. This will be co-ordinated by Charlbury Walkers and Cyclists are Welcome.
The walks will be circular walks through the Mill Field and up to Banbury Hill Farm which will involve improvements on existing paths and the creation of new permissive paths which will all be signed. There will also be two new information boards on the Mill Field walk.
The Cotswolds Voluntary Wardens will be carrying out this work for the project.
Cycle routes through Charlbury will also be improved and signed.
Also We will get new Town entrance signs recognising this status.
We will welcome input from anyone on this project particularly on the content and design of the notice boards.
So if you have any ideas and would like to help please let me know by email at
