A new footbridge over Lyvennet Beck in Maulds Meaburn has been officially opened.

The new structure replaces the old footbridge which was damaged beyond repair during Storm Desmond last winter.

The works were funded by the Rural Payments Agency via the RDPE, which is the Rural Development Programme for England, and were project managed by Cumbria County Council’s Countryside Access Team with the cooperation of the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority. The contractor who carried out the works was Brampton Woodworks.

A spokesperson for Cumbria County Council said: “The previous footbridge was well used and has been greatly missed since it was severely damaged last winter, so the new footbridge is particularly welcome.”
