1. Looking down to where the new bridge will span the river (three-o-clock on the photo).
2. A close up of where the bridge will cross at the site of the derelict Chadkirk weir.

This is the sight of a new footbridge across the River Goyt at Chadkirk, which will be completed in June 2012.

I'm never to sure about these new rural links for ease of access etc, etc. In this case 'ease of access', or more accurately, removing an inconvenience, usually results in opening up a tranquil wildlife haven to the blight of litter, dog dirt, graffiti, anti-social behaviour and the occasional intrusive buzz of a dirt bike. I really do hope I'm wrong as it's beautiful there.
