The Strawberry Line

The Strawberry Line is one of North Somerset’s jewels.

I play an active role in supporting the campaign to extend the Strawberry Line along (or close to) the old railway line to Clevedon.

I attend quarterly meetings (chaired by Cllr Geoff Richardson) and regularly discuss progress with council officers and Yatton Parish Council.

  • The first 720m stretch of the onward extension adjacent to the new Bloor Homes developments is near completion.
  • Further discussion with landowners is currently underway to connect this new path to North End Road and Lampley Road (Kingston Bridge).
  • The link from Yatton station to Arnolds Way will be considered next.
  • Highways England has funded an initial survey to assess the suitability of allowing bikes to use a culvert to cross under the M5. (Due to high costs a new bridge is unlikely.)
