Temporary Closure of Footpaths and Bridleways

The effect of the order will be to prohibit any persons using the footpaths and bridleways [see the map] to enable repairs to be carried out on the Belgrave access track to Darwen Tower and essential maintenance repairs to the Tower itself

The closure will become effective on the 25th of March 2021 for a period of six months or until the works have been completed.
