You can hardly see the join.

After coming off worse in a scrap with a falling over sycamore the iconic Hebble Hole footbridge has been repaired and officially reopened on Sunday 14th April 2019. It wasn’t an easy task and credit is due to Calderdale Council,the Pennine National Trails Partnership and the specialist contractors involved.

The opening event had much support from locals and the Parish Council who descended on the New Delight Pub at Jack Bridge (camping & excellent beer) before a short walk down to the bridge where Morris dancers did their thing and the bridge was officially reopened.

The cost of repairs was £25k and included a donation of £5k from Peak & Northern Footpaths Society.

National Trails  website shows the ticky nature of the job.
