Covered Walkways

Here at Littlethorpe of Leicester, we believe that Covered Walkways are essential for keeping visitors, staff and goods safe and dry when transitioning between buildings or vehicles. Our range of Covered Walkways are the ideal solution for covering paths and linking buildings together to shield people from all weathers. Our friendly and helpful team will look after you from start to finish, the initial consultation, design, manufacturing and installation.

Whether you are looking for Walkway Canopies that fix to a wall, or free-standing structures we manufacture and install a variety of covers from large-scale Walkway Covers to small Entrance Covers.

No matter what your budget is, here at Littlethorpe, we offer a range of protective structures for all budgets. We work on both commercial and domestic buildings to make sure you have a Walkway Canopy that suits your building and surroundings.

Covered Walkways are great protection against any and all weathers from intense sun UV rays to wind and rain. We know how annoying it can be when you need to walk from A to B but the Great British weather means you will be soaked through by the time you get to B, no matter how short the journey is. You can’t stop the weather, but with our Walkway Canopy range, you can prevent it from ruining your day. Our Pathway Covers can withstand high temperatures, gusty winds and heavy rain.

Walkway Canopy


More and more Schools are adopting a multi-building approach as the rise in pupil numbers increases; they are built to meet this growing demand, and this means moving from one class to another can be a struggle with a battle of the British weather. With our Walkway Canopy, we make it easier to move around the School premises, with the added bonus of the visual appeal.

Healthcare Establishments

Our range of Walkway Canopy can be used to link Hospitals or different wings of the Hospital. They are convenient during patient transfers and movement of professionals, keeping the paths clear of puddles and ice; this offers comfort for both patients and visitors.
