Welcome to our website


We are a group formed in February 2012, dedicated to making our villages safer for pedestrians, cyclists, horses, children, the elderly and everyone.

More specifically we want more bridleways, including safe connections from the village centre, and slower traffic.

We are also on facebook. See Charlesworth SPEED and the Bridleways pages below.



 November 2018. For more on the Parliamentary debate about road safety and the new Highway Code, click on the following link. Includes templates and how to contact your local MP.


 As of November 2017 the Group owns the following books:-
