Cemetery Footpaths Closed for Improvements

Popular walking routes through the Old Cemetery behind St John the Baptist Church (St John’s) will be closed next month for several weeks whilst essential maintenance work is carried out.

Pathways throughout the Old Cemetery will be closed from 1 July for the duration of the month whilst significant but essential resurfacing work takes place.

The works will be completed in sections, throughout the month alternative routes will be needed to avoid closed sections.

Bromsgrove District Council’s Interim Head of Environmental and Housing Property Services, Simon Parry, said: “We apologise for any inconvenience caused by these closures, we aim to complete the work as quickly as possible.”

The work is part of the ongoing Bromsgrove footpath improvement program and follows on from work undertaken earlier in 2024 to the North of St. John’s.

Simon added: “The works represent part of a larger initiative to improve the walking infrastructure of the town through the ongoing footpath improvement programme.”
