BELL BRIDGE, Sebergham 

Bell Bridge, Welton, collapsed on 27th January 2016, one of many bridges damaged by storms during the previous month.  This bridge was constructed in 1772, and was a Grade II listed structure built to replace an earlier bridge, also washed away by storms.  A section of Bell Lonning between Bell Bridge & Sebergham Bridge was also undermined by the storm.

Cumbria County Council (CCC)  awarded contracts to Story Contracting Ltd to design and construct the replacement bridge & to repair the adjacent road.    

Bell Bridge has now been re-built to a very high standard, and is again a significant feature in the local area.  The new bridge was formally opened by the Leader of Cumbria County Council on 19th December 2017.  A commemorative feature, seat  and plaque have been installed adjacent to the bridge, and Sebergham WI have planted bulbs in the adjacent grassed area.  It is well worth a visit.  

Bell Lonning - Officers have completed limited works to allow the roadway to be re-opened to light traffic as a temporary measure pending a final solution for full opening in 2018.
