New Blackpool Bridge In Place !

Blackpool Bridge 2

 

Continuing on from yesterday’s watery theme. Works to replace Blackpool Bridge are now complete. The new bridge was finished today and it looks robust and ready to carry walkers for many years to come.

The Kirklees rights of way officer involved has managed this project in a no fuss,professional manner and deserves a big thank you, as do the Trust for conservation volunteers who have worked up there in some awful conditions this last 5 weeks. Last but not least thanks to Peak & Northern Footpaths Society who picked up on the poor condition of the bridge and got something done about it as well as offering a financial contribution. 🙂
