£6,140raised of £6,000 target by 92 supporters

    Weʼve raised £6,140 to help fund the repair and maintenance of river walks and a bridge in a network in and near Lady Spring Wood, Malton

    Malton and Norton, North Yorkshire
    Funded on Thursday, 5th October 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    The boardwalk in Lady Spring Wood runs by the River Derwent between Norton & Malton and Old Malton. It is unsafe, unlikely to survive another winter as it is in disrepair, and is to be removed. A small bridge over The Cut nearby has been removed for the same reason and this is already limiting the routes that can be taken by walkers.

    The wood is bursting with wildlife and ancient, beautiful springs bubbling with clear spring water. Access to the woods and other local paths has provided joy for walkers for many years in this beautiful part of North Yorkshire.

    We are applying for funding from local organisations, but to reach our goals for short and longer term improvements, and to indicate the support of members of the local community, we need to raise a further £6000 for a safe, accessible woodland pathway and bridge. Feedback from our recent Questionnaire revealed that 24% would no longer use the area if the boardwalk is totally removed and 98% supported installing the new bridge.

    We plan to use this money to fund the replacement of the bridge across The Cut south of Malton and Norton Rugby Club, and to contribute to the management of the Lady Spring Wood boardwalks which we aim to remove and replace - with boardwalk and some ground level pathways - later this year and early next year.
