A difficult, very old stile, especially in wet weather, for small children and those less agile than they used to be, has been replaced with a new gate. This is on the footpath between Burton House and the Oak Bank Road. Sad but necessary, I am afraid.
Further along the trail, a damaged plank bridge has been replaced with a handsome new fit for purpose crossing.
The bridge has been replaced under CCC Flood Recovery Program funded by the Rural Payments Agency’s Cumbria Countryside Access Fund, which is being used to repair the damage on flagship routes within the county. Photos by CCC
