Cobham is fortunate to have many footpaths but with many busy residents preferring to use their cars, many of these footpaths have become overgrown and underused.
Cobham Heritage has an ongoing project to get these footpaths used more regularly, otherwise there is a danger they may be lost forever.
The riverside path which runs alongside the river Mole between the Tilt/Leigh Hill Road junction and the Cobham Mill was one of our earlier refurbishment successes and is regularly used by those visiting Cobham from the Stoke D'Abernon direction. This refurbishment was funded by Cobham Heritage and its upkeep continues to be a regular task and expense.
Other footpaths have also been refurbished more recently in conjunction with Elmbridge Borough Council (EBC). The refurbishment has been jointly funded by Cobham Heritage and the EBC Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) fund.
Recently refurbished footpaths include:-
|Footpath No||Footpath Description|
|-||Riverside path which runs alongside the river Mole between the Tilt/Leigh Hill Road junction and Cobham Mill|
|FP58||55m section between Hogshill Lane and Leigh Hill Road|
|FP61||100m section between connecting FP59 and FP62 near Leigh Place|
We will continue to review our local footpaths and work with Elmbridge Borough Council to improve the network of footpaths for the benefit of local residents.
