Wiveliscombe takes another step forward
As all Walkers are Welcome towns know, 2 of the main objectives are-firstly to work to keep the rights of way available to walkers, providing guidance for everyone who wants to enjoy the beautiful surroundings they have and secondly to promote the town as a destination for walkers thus benefiting the businesses.
With this in mind the 3rd edition of Wiveliscombe Circular Walks book was launched recently, having sold 2,000 copies of the previous editions since it was first published in 2006. The talents of Wiveliscombe were used again to provide updated text and 4 additional walks, extra drawings and maps as well as proof reading and re-walking. It was only for the printing that it was necessary to travel the 10 miles to Taunton.
At the same time work has been carried out with Ordance Survey to get recognition for Wiveliscombe’s own long distance walk, the 26 mile Wivey Way. It has now been confirmed that it is marked on OS Master maps (1:2500 scale now and 1:50,000 soon). Those walkers looking at and using these new maps will see Wiveliscombe ringed and bisected by designated paths. The hope is that this will help cemethe area as a place to be or to visit, walk and enjoy.
