Brinkworth Footpath Group is associated with the Parish Council, and aims to promote the use and enjoyment by all of public rights of way (footpaths, bridleways and byways) located within the boundary of Brinkworth Parish. We also aim to monitor the condition and upkeep of those ‘rights of way’ especially from a health and safety perspective and to report faulty gates or stiles, blockages and inadequate signage to Wiltshire Council. We also work with landowners to ensure that rights of way are easily accessible by walkers and horse-riders and, where appropriate, we undertake some clearance and improvement works ourselves.
The footpaths around the village have some lovely views of the village and nearby countryside, and offer chance to explore the wide variety of flora and fauna and to see how it changes through the seasons.
We’ve put together some (mostly) circular walks, starting and finishing at the Three Crowns pub. You can find these on our own website – www.brinkworthwalking.com – which also includes links to other resources useful for exploring the area.
Prints of these maps and guides are available in the Three Crowns, the Golf Club and both telephone box book exchanges in the village.
The walks are also downloadable from the website to print, or to save on your own mobile device.
We have also placed a map showing the footpaths in our area in each of the three village notice boards at Callow Hill, Stoppers Hill and near to the Three Crowns.
You can contact us on should you wish to volunteer to help, or with any suggestions to improve our network of paths and bridleways. We appreciate help from those who walk the paths and can let us know when attention is required, from those who walk specific paths regularly and can help us to increase the number of paths we are able to monitor, and from those who are willing to join work parties to carry out specific clearance or improvements.
