The Plan is available for review and comments are welcome – email: battlehealthpathway@hotmail.com

Apr 2017
The plan was discussed with Battle Town Council. Their recommendations are being incorporated into a plan that will then be ‘frozen’, ready for funding applications to be made.

Aug 2017
The “Frozen” agreed design includes: a picnic area within a nature garden; a ‘top loop’ with easy gradients; a cycle skills area; a space for exercise equipment; and links to Asten Fields and Mansers Shaw.

Technical details and draft costings were included in the work undertaken by the landscape architect. This has already proved to be extremely useful in working out what it could actually cost to build….  in the region of £220,000.

2018 Onwards
We are now at the fundraising stage. Fundraising events by many members of the community are helping the Project Group reach its target. Funding applications to local and national organisations and businesses have also been prepared. Some have been successful and others not. See our thank-you page.

March 2018
The Battle Health Pathway Project Group joined the Recreation Ground Working Group. This group has been set up by Battle Town Council and includes representatives from Battle Baptist Football Club, the Health Pathway and members of BTC’s Environment Committee. The group has the benefit of a professional fundraiser to guide and assist the Working Group on finding the funds for a bigger project of improving the pavilion and changing facilities, creating a community cafe and well as building the Pathway.. The common goal is to encourage more people to visit and enjoy the recreation Ground.

November 2018
Recreation Ground Working Group is renamed “Fit For Battle” group
