FOOTPATH WALK - SUNDAY 06
UNVEILING OF PLAQUE TO COMMEMORATE 'PHILLIPS PATH'
Local Community Remembers Driving
Force behind Newly Designated Footpath between Mount Bures and
The idea of the late Pauline Phillips, founder member of the
Mount Bures Footpath Society, the path provides a safe passage
from Mount Bures
to the Sudbury/Colchester Road to access local buses and the
amenities in the nearby villages of Bures Hamlet and Bures St
The path was created by local volunteers in the late 1990s with
the support of local councils, the Ramblers Association and
the Dedham vale and Stour Valley Project.
It was formally adopted as a Public Right of Way in 2017 and
is now used every day by local residents and visitors, including
children walking to school in Bures.
Pauline Phillips' role in creating this path was recognised
in a short ceremony, including members of her family, which
was held at the start of the path at the junction of the Colchester
Road and Brookhouse Lane at approximately 1130 on Sunday October
