The footpaths around Goostrey have become safer and easier to use in recent years thanks to work by the Countryside Management Services of Cheshire County Council.

The work of the Management Service has been backed up by many hunmdreds of hours voluntary work by the Goostrey Footpaths Group and their friends.

The Boardwalk near Swanick Hall Farm is an outstanding example of the Group's work - indeed it was their Millennium Project, as the plaque records. For this project, Cheshire County Council, Manchesster Airport Community Trust and Shell International kindly financed the materials, but all the work was carried out by volunteers.
