Footbridge in Dean Village to be repaired

Dean Village in the snow

The green iron footbridge is scheduled to re-open by the end of March 2021.

Quotes for the required repairs to Damside Bridge have now been received. The CEC is planning to deliver the repairs this financial year and hope to have them complete by end of March.

However, this cannot be guaranteed due to a number of factors that may affect the work including the lockdown and weather.


Recently uncovered a similar winter scene painting by Mrs E. Oughtred Buchanan 1937, in the style of William Gillies, of the Dean Village before the Legget Tannery was built after WWII.
