Cross Lane Footpath
The first phase for improvments to the footpath from the A38 junction to the public right of way at Springs Farm is complete.
The next phase is to improve the access to Axbridge. A questionnaire was sent to all residents in Compton Bishop Parish, asking for views on a next phase to improve the safety of an 'off-road' route and a one-way system on Cross Lane.

The results have brought forward many ideas and a report has been produced and approved by the Parish Counci (click here to view). The project continues.
For many years the safety of pedestrians and cyclists, with regard to Cross Lane and their safe access to facilities in Axbridge, has been an issue.
Planning policies have designated Axbridge as a 'Key Rural Settlement' providing facilities such as shops and post office, which no longer exist in other rural settlements. Access to this Key Rural Settlement should be available by sustainable transport as well as vehicular access.
