THE DONKEY BRIDGE

 

There are many people asking what is happening to the “Donkey bridge” down New England so we thought it would be good to give an update as to where things stand.

Sadly, this bridge was severely damaged early 2020 and it was reported to Shropshire Council who have since been emailed and telephoned on many occasions for a progress report on the repair, however, this bridge is just one of 20 such bridges that were damaged at the time. We have been assured that the repair of this is a priority but at this moment there are no funds available to either carry out the structural survey that is required or to repair the damage. We have stressed the importance of this bridge which has been used by many local walkers and horse riders as well as the history of both the bridge and pathways, as soon as we learn anymore, we will send out an update.

Please be assured that we will continue to chase this through with their Countryside Maintenance Manager at Shropshire Council.
