BELL BRIDGE (update April 2017)
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.
Cumbria County Council has awarded a contract to Story Contracting Ltd to design and build the replacement bridge, and two planning applications have been submitted and approved by Cumbria County Council to undertake the required works. Construction is due to commence at the end of May 2017, with completion by October. A further public consultation is under way on detailed planning issues to commemorate the former bridge, and the Parish Council will discuss the proposals at its meeting at 7.30p.m. on 24th May in Welton Village Hall. All are welcome to attend and contribute their views. To see the Public Consultation notice click here.
In addition, Story Contracting Ltd have been contracted to undertake the necessary repair work on the road running alongside Caldew Beck, Sebergham which also sustained structural damage at the time of the storms. This road remains open to pedestrians, cyclists, horse riders, etc, but is closed to vehicles because of the potential dangers arising from the unstable river bank.
Re-construction work has been delayed due to constraints enforced by the Environment Agency which currently prevent the contractors entering the river to stabilise the bank before May/June 2017. Both the County Council & Storys are continuing to work with the EA in an attempt to achieve an earlier start date because of the adverse impact the road closure is having on local residents. An update on the proposed work can be seen by clicking here.
Public Footpath 251010 has been re-routed; for full details click here.
