Breedon Gravel for extensive use throughout Daventry Country Park

A Local authority chose Breedon self-binding Golden Amber gravel for the large-scale regeneration of footpaths and cycleways throughout Daventry Country Park

West Northamptonshire Council were set on regenerating the country park and nature reserve to the highest standard, using products that would last and be suitable for all users – whilst complimenting the countryside setting.


Daventry Country Park is located on the outskirts of Daventry in Northamptonshire, it has numerous walks and cycle ways throughout the woodland site.  It boasts a large reservoir, café, adventure playground and also outdoor gym, not to mention picnic spots, sensory gardens, nature trails and accessible bird hides.  This is a wonderful outdoor space to visit, and the Park has been awarded the Country Parks Accreditation and also holds a Green Flag Award which recognises it as being among the best green spaces in the country. 

The supply

In September 2020 Breedon Special Aggregates won the contract to supply Bridge Construction with our Breedon Golden Amber self-binding gravel for footpath restoration throughout the majority of Daventry Country Park.  We supplied 700 tonnes of Breedon gravel over a two-month period, this completed 2.7km of footway and cycle-path and we have to say – it looks absolutely fantastic!

Why our product stood head and shoulders above alternatives

Our material was selected for its durable performance, yet natural appearance, ensuring that the restoration is sympathetic with the woodland surroundings whilst providing a hard, stable pathway accessible for everyone all year round.  Breedon Gravel is a non-frost susceptible limestone which means it will not lift over the frosty winter months.  Breedon Gravel when laid correctly will give a solid, bound surface, as it is weathered and trafficked the top surface will scarify giving a lasting loose dressing of chippings.  This product gives a wheelchair and buggy friendly surface – meaning that everyone will be able to enjoy the beautiful setting.

A Fantastic finish!

We have no qualms with recommending Daventry Country Park as one of the go-to places locally should you wish to see Breedon Golden Amber gravel in situ and laid to the optimum standard.
