  • Footpath from Watergate Lane to Staplehurst Avenue


    Access to Footpath from Watergate Lane to Staplehurst Avenue


    Residents who regularly used the footpath between Watergate Lane and Staplehurst Avenue will recall that during the flood alleviation works in June 2013, access to the footpath was closed and the gate locked by the landowner.
    Following complaints from local residents and users of the footpath who stated they had used the route for well over 20 years, the Town Council formally applied to Leicestershire County Council for a Definitive Map Modification Order; i.e. that the footpath be included as a right of way on the official map of rights of way.
    Therefore many residents will welcome the news that on 7th August 2018, having fully undertaken the legal and technical process and received no objections, Leicestershire County Council made the Order which confirmed this path to be an official “Right of Way” which will result in the path being added to the Definitive Map and will mean that it is shown as green dotted on future Ordinance Survey Maps.

    Thank you to residents who supported the Town Council in making this application by providing evidence of the route’s use as a right of way.   We can continue to enjoy the walk safe in the knowledge that future generations of residents will be able to do the same.



    To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the ending of World War One, individuals and groups are joining together to create a Cascade of Poppies.
    Local crafters are creating craft poppies which, when fixed to a mesh, will cascade down an exterior wall at Braunstone Civic Centre. The cascade will then flow out along the ground up to and around the Memorial Stone in the garden at the Centre on Kingsway, Braunstone Town. The community aim to make 14,177 poppies to commemorate each of the Leicestershire men who died as a result of the conflict.
    All types of craft poppies are needed (except card or paper – the display will be outside in November…) and we would welcome anyone to join us, whether you want to make one poppy, a dozen or more, and perhaps to tell us their stories of their relatives who lived during World War One. The group also wants anyone who wishes to donate red knitting wool, fabric or any camouflage type netting to please get in touch. Call 0116 2992192 or email: editor@braunstonelife.co.uk
