NEW BRIDLEWAY ROUTE MAKES NUNNERY PARK A HOTSPOT FOR FITNESS ENTHUSIASTS
Leading regeneration specialist St. Modwen has made major improvements to the bridleway route surrounding its Nunnery Park development in Worcester.
Working with the city and county councils, The Ramblers, British Horse Society and Open Space Society, St. Modwen developed the new walking, riding and cycle path that is longer than the previous route, more accessible and provides a higher quality space for exercise.
St. Modwen’s plans at Nunnery Park required the bridleway to be diverted and thus, a purpose-built perimeter track has been created to cater for all, with a safe connection to the A4440 Nunnery Way which runs alongside the development.
The extended bridleway runs for 990 metres, the equivalent to 1300 steps calculated on an activity tracker, and takes between 10–15 minutes on average to walk from end to end – ideal for a brisk walk or lunch time stroll.
Jonathan Green, Director of Asset Management at St. Modwen said: “We are very pleased with the improvements made to the bridleway at Nunnery Park and hope the public will enjoy the new route, whether they’re walking, running or cycling.”
Ted Rogers, Senior Consultant at Acorus Rural Property Services Limited, said: “The new bridleway is now longer in distance, higher in quality, accessible at both ends and provides good opportunities for exercise around the site.”
“The route also links to Worcester County Park on the other side of Nunnery Way and offers some great viewpoints along the way.”
St. Modwen recently sold development sites to fast-food chain Kentucky Fried Chicken and family pub operator Greene King at its 155,000 sq ft Nunnery Park scheme in Worcester. Both companies will develop their own outlets, with KFC providing a new drive-through restaurant and Greene King planning a family pub and restaurant.
St. Modwen is also progressing with the next phase of development work at Nunnery Park which will see new trade units completed by the end of October 2017.
Nunnery Park is well connected to local and regional transport networks, lying between junctions 6 and 7 of the M5 and just three miles from Worcester Shrub Hill station.
