Battle Town Council approached Clark & Kent Contractors to help develop an initial concept for their new mini wheels project on Battle recreational ground in East Sussex. Battle is extremely sensitive to new developments due to the historic battle of 1066, and the recreation ground is a centre and focal point for the whole community.
Clark & Kent helped develop the design and costings and were delighted to succeed in the public tender to secure the construction. The pump track was constructed on the lower tier of the site and required an extensive drainage scheme due to the site's unusual topography.
Battle pump track construction proved to be an exciting and organic build, carefully considering tree roots and mindful of the local ecology. The work was completed in six weeks in December and January 2020.
The exciting new Battle pump track has been well received by the local community. The town council organised an opening event which made for a brilliant day of activities and encouraged numerous new users.
