Emergency footpath closure at river 14 Mar 2023 A land slip has required a local footpath to be temporarily closed

A footpath at Swinford in Cumnor has been closed with immediate effect due to a land slip.

Part of the bank has collapsed along the riverside footpath and this section will remain closed until emergency repair works have been completed. There is also a need for some tree works by boat on the river.

We have received notice from Oxfordshire County Council that repair works will be carried out from 4-24 April. Over this period the footpath will be completely closed.

Diversion signs will indicate the alternative route, which takes walkers via Oxford Road. Please view this route on the map below.

Eynsham Parish Council will update residents if we have further news on this, conscious that many in our community walk along the river in this area.
