Fenny Compton Footpath Group

Fenny Compton Footpath Group was formed in 1997 in conjunction with Warwickshire County Council and the Parish Council. We meet for 3-hour work sessions every month on a Sunday morning to maintain the parish's footpaths and bridleways.

For more information see their Facebook page.


We had another busy summer on the footpaths. In Burton Dassett we had a request for a gate replacement at the smallholding next to the church. The old gate was not self-closing and if walkers did not close the gate properly lambs were getting out. Warwickshire County Council supplied the gate and the installation went very well. While we were there, we also fitted 2 new marker posts and renewed waymarker discs. Earlier in the summer we replaced 30 boards that were rotten on a wooden footbridge we built about 20 years ago. The bridge is on the county boundary on the path which heads northwards towards Watergall. That also went well and it boosted my firewood stock.

Thanks to Derek and Kate Carless for once again doing an excellent job of hosting our annual barbeque, the rain held off and we had a very pleasant evening.

The Footpath Group was founded in 1997 by the local GP as part of a 3-year programme by Warwickshire Council to clear or re-open all of the footpaths and bridleways in Warwickshire. 22 years later and we still have plenty to do. If you would like to get involved or have any comments on the footpaths, please contact me on 770 644. You can also follow us on Facebook where there is plenty more information on what we have done, including ‘before and after' photos and information on how to contact the Group.

If you would like to get involved, please call me on Brian Peers 770 644 or email us on fc.fpg@btinternet.com. Have a look at the Group's Facebook page where you can see what we get up to month by month.
