Footpath Closed

Footpath Closure – Wednesday 9th September.

The main footpath from Hospital Road, Moreton in Marsh passing the allotments through to Batsford Arboretum will be closed due to bridge repairs on Wednesday 9th September 2020 for approximately 1 week. There are no alternative routes in place. Please can we ask walkers to stick to other footpaths as walking around the field margins disturbs the wildlife. Thank you for your assistance during this period.

3rd August 2020 – Power cuts expected

Many of us experienced a power cut on Friday 31st July 2020. This was due to Western Power having a fault on the line. We have been informed this morning, Western Power are planning to replace sections of wire this week, 3rd – 9th August 2020, so we may experience power cuts again. Batsford Estate has no control over the electricity.  More information can be found on the website https://www.westernpower.co.uk/. If you click on live power cut maps and the area you live it will give you an update on the power situation and if a fault has been reported.
