At a meeting yesterday, the Friends of St Marks Churchyard recommended proceeding with repairs/improvements to the 105m of churchyard paths used by the Oval Farmers’ Market. The work is expected to be paid for by City and Country Farmers’ Market/Oval Partnership/Friends.
At the moment, the churchyard path on the Oval Triangle side of the churchyard is 2.1m wide. In contrast the path used by the market on the Prima Road side is 1.5m. The plan is to widen the path to match the other side and to repair the 70 or so broken pavers
The red line in the following images illustrate the approximate line of the expanded path way.
