Path project to link Seascale and Gosforth communities

People living in two Cumbrian communities are being invited to find out more about an £800,000 route to link them.

Work on the Viking Way bridleway project between Seascale and Gosforth is due to start in the spring. Its name reflects the area's history.

The aim is to provide an off-road route between the two for cyclists, walkers and horse riders.

Public meetings are being held on Wednesday to explain the plans.

The only current route between the two villages is a road with no path. The bridleway will run beside the road.
