Carr Bridge Riverside Path opens
Riverside walk improves access for all in Carr Bridge
Significant improvements have been made to a popular walk along the river Dulnain at Carr Bridge. The route takes path users from the pony trekking centre and ‘Gurkha bridge’ 1500m along the river to the village shops and historic stone bridge.
Members of the community turned out on Friday 4th June to celebrate the improved path and after hearing some local history and personal perspective from a couple of well-kent faces, took part in a walk along the path and on into the Carr Bridge Hotel for tea, cakes and a chat.
Improvements to the path include realigning the route away from the river to avoid flood damage, upgrading the path surface to a firm aggregate surface and providing seating and rest ‘perches’ to allow all-abilities access along the river bank. With a newly formed Health Walks group in the village as well as mums and tots, dog walkers and regular coach parties visiting the hotels the path looks like it will be greatly appreciated.
