For quite some time now the footbridge at Ebley (SO 82611 04534 on footpath MCA7) has been blocked off to prevent its use after it was condemned as dangerous. This bridge is on one of the branches of the Cotswold Way and although an alternative was available by the Council Offices is absence limited walking opportunities in the area. We are pleased to see that it has been repaired and is now open for ramblers to again cross the River Frome on their way up to Redhill Farm. Just take care when within a few hundred metres you need to cross the Ebley bypass A419. There are stiles to get over the fences, but there’s nothing to control the traffic!
