In September Breedon Special Aggregates won a contract to supply Bridge Construction with our Breedon Golden Amber self-binding gravel for footpath restoration throughout the majority of Daventry Country Park, which was completed last month.

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 loose dressing of chippings over the area. This product gives a wheelchair and buggy friendly surface – meaning that all will be able to enjoy the beautiful setting.

We supplied 700 tonnes approximately over a two-month period which completed 2.7km of footway and cycle-path and we have to say – it looks absolutely fantastic!

Daventry Country Park is located on the outskirts of Daventry which has numerous walks and cycle ways throughout its grounds. It has a large reservoir, café, adventure playground and also outdoor gym equipment, not to mention picnic spots, sensory gardens, nature trails and accessible bird hides. Other activities that are available are orienteering, fishing and geo-caching amongst other things.

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.

We have no qualms with recommending this 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.
