The Claypits Local Nature Reserve – latest updates

Main paths closure, 4th February 2019 – autumn 2019

The main path in The Claypits (known as ‘The Yellow Brick Road’) will be closed from 4th February until autumn 2019.

This closure is to allow a wide range of improvements to the area including: the construction of a new foot and cycle bridge over the Forth & Clyde Canal; new and improved pathways; new wildlife habitats; the creation of viewpoints; the installation of fishing pegs; improved drainage in the surrounding area; and new gateways at Panmure Street, Garscube Road, and Ellesmere Street.

An alternative route is available via the Applecross Street and Ellesmere Street footpaths during the construction works.
