Spot the difference
No, it's not the cattle!
Peter Wells, our Nidderdale Footpath Officer, spotted that a bridge on the footpath from Coldbeck House to Tinker Lane was badly in need of repair. Peter, and another Ramblers member, had worked hard to get the footpaths in the local area improved and re-opened between 2008 and 2012 and was checking up on the current state of the paths. He reported the damage to the bridge to North Yorkshire County Council and has recently had a reply to give him the good news that the bridge has been repaired and now has gates at the end instead of the railed fence.
