Friends of Glen Goyle

Glen Goyle is a tucked away public area in Sidmouth’s western town. In the past it was well tended but has since fallen into an unbalanced wilderness.

This Friends of Glen Goyle group has decided to tackle this neglected area and bring it back to a more balanced state. It has it’s own particular microclimate and could be a real asset to Sidmouth with a little care and effort.

Our aims are to

  1. To improve the appearance and condition of the property for the benefit of residents and visitors.
  2. To seek governance arrangements which will secure the future of the property as a public open space, available to all, and to promote its use.
  3. To encourage wildlife and biodiversity.
  4. To pursue sustainable and high quality outcomes that reflect the special character of the property.

If you would like to join the group then please get in touch.
