Ripley Greenway

Grey Squirrel Ripley Greenway is an off road multi-user route for cyclists, walkers and horse riders.
The site was created by the recovery of the disused Ripley Colliery and Ripley branch railway between 1974 and 1977 to give a lined route with nearby areas of open greenspace and plantations at Ripley and Marehay.

The main path was then improved and the Greenway now has a tarmac surface and street lighting from Outram Street south to Lumb Farm. Various items of community artwork are installed along the route.
