Coaley is in Gloucestershire 3 miles from Dursley, and 5 miles from Stroud. The village extends from the edge of the Cotswold Hills at Coaley Peak viewpoint, to the A38 road in the north west. The picture above was taken from Cam Long Down and shows Coaley viewed from the south with the Cotswold edge on the right and the River Severn on the left. Coaley has a population of around 800.
We have heard today (2nd Nov) that the contractors, Complete Utilities Ltd, installing the fibre in the village have ceased trading with immediate effect.
Gigaclear are working to manage the consequences of this and to transfer the work to other contractors they have already engaged.
Sites with traffic management have been visited over the weekend and made safe. All equipment should remain in place.
Gigaclear will update us as soon as possible.
Coaley Community Orchard is at Far Green. Planting started in March 2021 so at the moment the orchard is in it's early stages. We currently have ten heritage apple and pear trees and plan to plant five more in early 2022.
