The Sussex Border Path at Weirwood Reservoir has recently been restored following partnership working between East Sussex and West Sussex county councils. Over 1km of badly degraded public footpath has been enhanced. Councillors Sylvia Tidy and Keith Blake, the county council representatives on the High Weald Joint Advisory Committee (JAC), cut the ribbon to open the restored section.
The work was supported by the JAC's Wead Forest Ridge Landscape Partnership Scheme as part of wider improvements to the site.
Other work supported by the Scheme includes an interpretive trail and leaflet drop to local residents, new viewpoints across the water, rafts for nesting Terns and a renovated picnic area by the water's edge.
The project is being funded by the Weald Forest Ridge Landscape Partnership Scheme with support from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
