Excited to let you know that work has now started on the Limpsfield Way, starting with the new “Rest and Play” area located in the the lovely green clearing south of the New Road car park.
The contractor (Conservation & Access) has created and installed some fabulous natural wood play equipment for children, along with three benches and a picnic table for rest and refreshment.
We will soon be installing an easy access path from the car park, which will be suitable for wheelchairs and buggies. We are hoping that the Limpsfield Way – a 4.5 mile circular walk from Limpsfield to Limpsfield Chart – will be completed by July.
The route will be waymaked and have a number of information boards with local historical facts.
We are also planning a ‘there and back’ cycle route from Limpsfield Village to Limpsfield Chart.
We will also be setting up web pages dedicated to the walk and cycle route with maps and more information. Please contact Sophie at Limpsfield Parish Council, on firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any comments or would like more information.In the meantime, enjoy the new natural play area!

Thank you so much to everyone who has been volunteering to help those in need around the Parish. We’ve been amazed by the huge effort of the community to ensure everyone is OK.
