Woodside Bridge

After a relatively slow start to fundraising in 2018, in 2019 we saw an uplift in the effort, resulting in sufficient funds having been raised to replace the iconic Woodside Bridge in the Watersmeet Valley.

Our thanks go to the members of the subcommittee who, working in partnership with the Exmoor National Park Authority (ENPA) and the National Trust (NT), have ensured work will start on the replacement bridge in late April 2020.

Between ENPA and LCDT, over £73,000 has been raised and a special opening ceremony at a date to be arranged will be a fitting tribute to all our efforts.

At the same time, efforts have been made to improve access from the bridge to Middleham Gardens.

Woodside Bridge is weathering beautifully into the surrounding area.
