What is happening to the Tarka Trail footpath and cyclepath?


Don’t worry, the trail will still be there. It might move 6 feet to the side in places, but that’s all.

Who is paying for all this?


We are a charity. Individuals and companies are donating to make this possible.

What is a CIO?


A Charitable Incorporated Organisation is a relatively new legal structure that combines the benefits of being a charity and a company at the same time.
