The Final Step. Sprint Mill Footbridge finally replaced and open to walkers.

new-sprint-brisge-open-250117The new footbridge is now in place. The original pillar which was in the middle of the river has been omitted, thus allowing huge floating objectives free passage, one such object suspected as being the cause of the original damage. CCC has been working closely with the mill owners, whose insurers’ settlement has funded the project, to design a bespoke bridge that is more fitting for present and future use. CCC has provided the usual technical expertise, namely design and method statements, obtaining necessary EA and NE consents, tenders and contract management during the works. On behalf of all our future Dales Way travellers, the Dales Way Association wish to thank all those involved in putting this bridge in place.


Open all hours.
