Centurion Way Temporary Closure from 21st May until further notice

Arboriculturalist surveys identified that Ash dieback is advancing through large volumes of Ash trees within falling distance of the licensed path presenting a safety risk to public. The closure is necessary to ensure public safety and to remove tree limbs and trees that have suffered Ash dieback.

Habitat surveys are on-going to ensure regulations compliance, inform tree felling methodology and mitigation measures to minimise habitat loss.

We are working hard to keep the closure to a minimum.

Top tips to ensure your holiday or travel booking is safe

  • Do thorough research on accommodation, flights, cruises, package holidays or pilgrimages advertised via private advertisements, to check they’re authentic.
  • Check that accommodation really exists by finding it on Google Maps and looking for independent reviews and recommendations. If you can, call and speak to the owner/agent directly. If the number is not provided, email and request it.
  • Check reviews on TripAdvisor or similar sites.
  • Never pay for holidays or travel by bank transfer. If you do and it’s a fraud, you may never see your money again. Paying by credit card means more chance of getting your money back if something goes wrong.
  • Make sure travel agents and tour operators you book through are members of trade associations such as ABTA or ATOL, by checking on these bodies’ websites.
