BRIDLE PATHS & FOOTPATHS


Over the past two or three years a number of gates have been erected by a local landowner(s) over bridle paths and footpaths impeding and causing inconvenience to walkers and other users including horse riders of these public rights of way.

Villagers and others users are urged to be mindful of the restrictive nature and consequences of these barriers and report any fault, no matter how small, regarding stiles, stock gates, padlocked gates etc.

There are a number of websites that you might wish to report your concerns and are as follows:

WELCOME TO BRIMPSFIELD VILLAGE
​AND ITS COMMUNITY



Brimpsfield is a village in the Gloucestershire Cotswolds, nestling between Gloucester - (9 miles), Cirencester - (9 miles) and Cheltenham - (7 miles). It prides itself on being a village community (with its own Celtic stone circle) and is inclusive of all, both young and old. There are 84 dwellings in the village with a population of approx 221 and in recent years Brimpsfield has 'grown' by the influx of young families with their children (and animals!) whilst enjoying the support and care of the more established members of the community.  For a fuller history of Brimpsfield please Click here
Close-by is the village of Birdlip and frequently the two communities, (Brimpsfield & Birdlip), come together to share & enjoy events.  There is always something going on, whether an organised community event or a drink at the village Hall's 'Wheelers' bar every Friday evening from 6.30 pm.​​​​.

Advertising space available on this website from as little as £2 per year - contact us.
