Public Access

Our proposals involve the creation of some 7km (4.3 miles) of new formal public paths within the site. This includes new paths linking into the wider local network and to sites of interest.
 

Public Access

Restoring not just the quarried land but the wider parkland landscape creates an opportunity for increased public access and enjoyment.

Conservation, rejuvenation and management of the landscape and its ecological and historical assets will lead to an overall increase in the quality of local and regional access and amenity value.   

The proposed development will help to stabilise, conserve and enhance the stand-alone Hyndford site, providing a sustainable management solution to rejuvenate a currently degrading landscape. But it will also support and complement nearby environmental and leisure / tourism sites include the New Lanark World Heritage Site and Lanark Moor Country Park.

Our proposals involve the creation of some 7km (4.3 miles) of new formal public paths within the site. This includes new paths linking into the wider local network and to sites of interest. There are also possible connections with a long distance River Clyde footpath route.

There will be visitor parking and an information area at the north eastern end of the site plus interpretation boards describing a journey through the landscape. Educational resources will be provided to capitalise on the historical and social significance of the Bonnington parkland, its wildlife and ecology, geology and geomorphology.
