  1. Planning to go up early this Sunday morning(14th).Are you able to give me directions for the temporary diversion please?

    • Hi Diana, sorry we don’t have any information on the diversion – try the National Trust (although at present it should be easy enough to wade across the ford next to the bridge; or to walk a little way up the road to the alternative path via Storey Arms…).

  2. 26 Jan 24: When I got to where the bridge was I was advised to go back to the Storey Arms and walk up from there by a NT member of staff because of soil erosion or walk across the river. I walked across the river and got wet feet on the way back.
