The third guided walk as part of this year’s Farnham Walking Festival took in views of Crest Nicholson’s Brightwells Yard development on Monday 20th May as the route passed through Borelli Walk, which was recently reopened to the public.
The ten mile walk called ‘Farnham’s Mountain’ started at the offices of Farnham Town Council before progressing down Borelli Walk and along the North Downs Way into Tilford.
Farnham Walking Festival will continue its free tours of the Surrey and Hampshire countryside until 2nd June and is organised by Farnham Town Council with each walk is led by a volunteer with local knowledge.
Borelli Walk was reopened by Crest Nicholson in March after it was closed last year for installation of the temporary construction access bridge which provides a direct route into the site from the A31 and has successfully kept construction traffic for the scheme away from Farnham Town Centre.
Tim Jones, Development Director at Crest Nicholson, said:
“Now that the temporary bridge is in place, we are very pleased to be able to reopen Borelli Walk to local residents. Farnham Walking Festival is a great opportunity for residents to get to know their local area and we are delighted that Borelli Walk is able to be a part of it.”
Brightwells Yard is being developed by Crest Nicholson in partnership with Waverley Borough Council and Surrey County Council. The new development will bring 239 new homes comprised of one, two and three bedroom apartments into Farnham Town Centre, alongside retail units, a cinema, restaurants, cafes, together with a new Town Square and public gardens and a multi-storey car park.
The sales launch of the first new homes is planned in Spring 2020, and you can register your interest online now
The development will have a phased opening from Spring 2021 and will be fully complete by Autumn 2022.
