Celebrating our Heritage Enhancing our Environment Shaping our Future

A walk exploring the impact of urban development on Salisbury – Sat 21 May

Our next event with Dr Hadrian Cook  describes the development of Salisbury since the nineteenth century and how this has impacted on the rivers and  older landscapes including water meadows, the floodplain and former agricultural land. The walk will take in Lower Bemerton – Broken Bridges, Middle Street Meadows, Harnham Water Meadows, Ayleswade Bridge and Churchill Gardens where it will finish.

The itinerary will involve crossing the Water Meadows which are grazed by sheep so we have to specify no dogs are permitted.

Date: Saturday 21 May 2022
Meeting: 2.30pm at Lower Road (the westward continuation of Churchfields Road at Lower Bemerton) by the footpath turn off at Broken Bridges. There are buses from the town centre – Bus R8 departing New Canal at 2:10pm arriving 2;17 at Cherry Orchard Lane,  there is a short walk to the start at Broken Bridges on Lower Road. There maybe parking at Churchfields as it’s a Saturday.
Duration:  2 – 2.5 hours.  Please note the walk will finish in Churchill Gardens. Be prepared – stout shoes would be sensible! Distance: about 6km (4 miles)
