A new family-friendly cycle trail on the Dudmaston estate opened in time for the summer holidays. The new National Trust (NT) trail runs through Comer Woods just a few miles from Bridgnorth and offers the opportunity for families to get outdoors and cycle in an environment that’s both beautiful and safe. The mixed surface, 3.5km route is suitable for walkers and joggers too.
The Explorer Trail is one of 10 trails across the country that has been developed in association with Sport England, with the aim of helping visitors get active and explore the great outdoors. The project was made possible by additional funding from the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development.
Dudmaston’s Marcus Halliwell says, “As a conservation charity, the NT is committed to protecting and conserving the wildlife, landscape and historic features at Dudmaston. As part of the developments in Comer Woods, the team will be developing the site for wildlife and enhancing its biodiversity by widening the woodland rides and managing the grassland and meadow areas.”
