Manor Brook Footbridge Replaced

The Narth Footpath Project achieved another success last week when a new footbridge was installed across Manor Brook, thanks to the County Council.  The old bridge had been closed for some time after it was condemned for being in a dangerous state.

Brian Mahony, who set up the Footpath Project last year, said “our thanks to the Monmouthshire CC Countryside Wardens for all their help in working with us to provide and install a recycled footbridge over Manor Brook to replace the derelict one which we believe dated from the 1970s.”

The Footpath Project was established as a result of the 2015 Community Led Plan which identified the footpath network around our village as one of the features of our area most valued by residents.  Since then the team has surveyed most of the footpaths around the village, passing the findings on to the County Council footpaths officers.  As a result waymarking has been improved, and some styles mended or replaced.

The project is ongoing.  Anyone interested in becoming involved should contact Brian Mahony on
