The ford now has concrete ramps on both sides. The path has been tarmaced and the footbridge repaired. Its looks looking great but its still deep. It does not look as if your average saloon or hatchback will make it through with today’s water level.
Cyclists on National Cycle Route 23 will be able to cross safely now on the path and bridge.
I guess the rubble barrier is to stop the water washing the bank away or perhaps to restrict the width.
However there is something missing, the depth guage has gone.
