Duchess Wood, Helensburgh, closed until further notice Last updated: 3 Jul 2019 - 10:59 (originally posted: 3 Jul 2019 - 10:59)

In order to ensure public safety, a decision has been made to close Duchess Wood in Helensburgh until further notice.

Part of the on-going management and maintenance of Duchess Wood includes undertaking a survey of the condition of the woodland.

Unfortunately, the most recent survey has highlighted a number of safety issues which need to be addressed, including urgent remedial works to trees.

We have therefore been advised it is necessary to close the woodland whilst necessary works are completed. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
