Green corridors

The map (below) shows the two distinct green corridors linking the parish with the town of Whitchurch: the disused railway line and the Test valley.

These areas are very important for both the community and the natural environment, because they provide a wide range of wildlife habitats, tree cover and footpath links. They are particularly highly valued as they provide continuous corridors that are separated from the disturbance associated with buildings and traffic. It is essential to retain the unspoilt character of these two corridors and to encourage and reinforce footpath links throughout.
