A new cycle route through the village to link Melksham with Trowbridge has been proposed by Wiltshire Council, and funding is now being sought. It will use existing byways and bridleways. The Melksham News has the story and a map. The Parish Council was not consulted about this. It seems that we shall all be consulted if the scheme is completed. A problematic part of the route could be the byway [ SEMI 9A/10 ] running west from St George’s Road as the surface of this track is subject to severe water erosion and the route already has a mix of users.
