“A small group of us here in Iver, all members of the Friends of the Colne Valley Park, and all involved with practical clearance and maintenance of the Public Rights of Way network, have launched a project to further encourage local people to walk and explore their local rights-of-way. The goal is to have real-time video clips of all 30km public footpaths and bridleways in the parish of Iver available on you tube.”
Behind the camera is Andy Thomas, whose original idea it was. Andy is responsible for the videoing, editing, artwork etc. Appearing in the videos are Paul Graham and Carol Gibson who both have extensive local knowledge which they share whilst walking.
Andy, Paul and Carol have now done 70% of all paths in Iver and plan on completing them all soon. They are pleased to say that there has been a lot of positive feedback from the public. As you can see in the photo, they have been enjoying the recent fine weather. Here they are, just about to set off on a walk that starts in Iver Village and goes across two ancient fields called Stonecroft and Widecroft.
If you’d like some ideas about where to walk in this area, you’ll find plenty amongst their extensive video collection.
