The path, which runs from the Tydd Gote pumping station to Church Lane bridge in Tydd St Giles, was the result of a project between the North Level District Internal Drainage Board, Calon Energy, the Lincolnshire Community Foundation, the Brigstock & WREN charity and Tydd St Giles Parish Council.

Mr Barclay was joined on a rainy afternoon last Friday (11) by 40 pupils from Tydd St Mary Primary School and Kinderley Community Primary School to officially open the path.

He said: “I am looking forward to walking this route with my family and enjoying the beautiful Fenland scenery in the months and years ahead.

“I would like to thank all those who made this project happen.”
