It seems not many people know The Greenway. True – there’s not much to indicate its presence. It’s a lovely pedestrian pathway into the centre of Brighton. You can access it from New England Road. Just after passing under the iron bridge, there’s a path leading up steps to the right. It goes over the bridge and leads up to Stroudley Road.
It’s got very overgrown and feels rather forlorn now, so a number of local groups are getting together to try to revive it and help it fulfil its potential. It could be Brighton’s Highline!
We are trying to meet once a month to clear overgrowth and pick up litter: come along Sunday 11th January 2015 12.30 to 3.30 to back of Clarendon Centre, Boston Street, BN1 4GQ. Do wear solid shoes and warm waterproof clothing. Bring gardening gloves and secateurs if you have them.
We are also organising regular open meetings for all interested in reinvigorating The Greenway so we can discuss ideas and start to plan a way forward. The next meeting is Tuesday 13th January 2015 7.30pm at the Clarendon Centre, BN1 4GQ. Do come along – the Greenway has a bright potential future!
