A thaw and a bridge gone


















The rapid thaw and torrential rain last Saturday gave the River Devon the power to demolish the army-built bridge which links the 'Millenium Path' to Rumbling Bridge Gorge.

Destruction



















The remains further down-river



















I wonder how long it will take for it to be rebuilt?

  1. I think there will be lots of broken bridges this winter. If it was built as part of the Millennium project there may be a maintenance fund still available.

  2. Sure you're right Alan. It would have been an amazing sight to have been close enough (not too close though!)to have seen the bridge go! Don't know about maintenance funds, but hope you're right on that count too.
