As part of National Trust's extensive programme of safety works relating to Ash Dieback Disease in the area they are having to remove a considerable number of trees from their land at Coaley Peak near Nympsfield. The Cotswold Way runs directly through an area of trees that will need to be felled and for safety reasons the footpath will need to be closed whilst the works are carried out, and suface made good after. The affected part of the route is shown on the attached plan (marked with a red line), on which they have also indicated a route for a diversion that should be in place for the duration (marked with a blue line).
UPDATE: 17th February 2021. The path is being repaired this week by contractors, and the steps are being installed at the end of the month, so it is hoped the diversion will be removed early March. National Trust will be replanting, 200 trees (shrubby species) shortly, with more planting being undertaken next winter.
