Donate-A-Gate

Leave a footprint

Donating a gate can be a nice way to mark a special event such as an anniversary or an important birthday, or to remember a special person. At the same time, you’ll be helping to improve access and safety for the thousands of walkers that enjoy the Chilterns every year.

Donated gates can be fitted with a plaque which, for example, could include the name of the donor, a special date or a short memorial inscription.

Installation is carried out by our path maintenance volunteers and is intended to improve access for all users particularly those who find stiles difficult to cope with. Some of the gates we install are specifically designed for use with mobility vehicles.
