We’ve recently had 300 tonnes of road chippings delivered to the National Diving & Activity Centre.
These have been used to improve areas of the car park and the road down to the pontoons.
We have also re-painted the markers in the car park to help visitors park a bit more easily when visiting the National Diving & Activity Centre.
We are excited to announce that the National Diving and Activity Centre has successfully gained a full planning consent from The Forest of Dean District Council for the erection of a three storey modular facilities building at our Tidenham site.
The consent will support NDAC’s future growth and continued investment into the business, create local employment and provides wider community support for the area as a whole.
In the last few weeks we have taken delivery at the National Diving & Activity Centre of some new pontoon sections from Southampton.
The Wye Valley Greenway provides a sustainable way to explore the beautiful Lower Wye Valley, an area of outstanding natural beauty.
A fascinating video report by Forgotten Relics about the fabulous Tidenham Tunnel, constructed in the 1870s as part of a railway connecting Chepstow and Monmouth, but destined to become the second longest tunnel on the country’s cycle network when it reopens as part of the Wye Valley Greenway.
Work to reopen the 1,188-yard long Tidenham Tunnel has made considerable progress in 2020, with tarmac laid by a contractor at the start of September followed by a subsequent volunteer workcamp which saw lighting installed and recesses bricked-up to encourage bat use.
Dating from 1876, the structure is unusual in that it started out as two tunnels; the small, intervening gap was later arched over and backfilled.
It’s hoped to open the greenway – which will connect Chepstow to Tintern – in the spring of 2021.
