Bridges in Blengdale Forest

Bridges 

Working with the Forestry Commission and the local community, two new bridges were built in Blengdale Forest, providing vital missing links to the network of footpaths and bridleways in the Forest. One of the bridges is over 60 feet long, and is the largest bridge ever installed by the National Park. Each one had to be specially designed and was prefabricated in steel sections small enough to be transported to this remote location, and bolted then together on site.The bridges have opened up parts of the forest which were previously all but unreachable, and have provided a number of circular walk options.
