Alkington Parish is a rural area halfway between Gloucester and Bristol. It lies to the west of the Cotswold escarpment and runs from the rolling hills and mixed farms below the escarpment to the flat water meadows of the Vale of Berkeley.

The population of 650 is split between Newport (where approximately half of the population lives), the largest settlement, and the rest of the parish.

Alkington Parish Council consists of 7 councillors, who give their time to continue to make the parish a pleasant place to live. The parish council is not responsible for planning decisions, rubbish collection, recycling, potholes or the roads, but is in regular contact with both Stroud District Council and Gloucester County Council, in particular Highways, to try to influence their delivery of services in the parish.

Part of the public footpath from The Old Mill House at Woodford, which then extends in a generally south-easterly then southerly direction for a distance of approximately 800 m to south-west of Middle Mill Farm at Damery Lane, will be closed until the end of December. It was originally closed in March and expected to be repaired by August, but work is still ongoing.

The closure is necessary for works to protect the public from a broken footbridge over the weir. More »
