A construction project that involved the creation of two bridges in the Blengdale region of the Lake District is set to open up a previously 'secret' part of the area.
The large wooden bridges have been built in Blengdale Forest in the western part of the Lake District, opening up a route across the River Bleng and Scalderscew Beck. The park authorities stated that the new bridges are part of a project to improve access in the national park, giving walkers, cyclists and horse riders a route in to one of the least known parts of the Lake District.
The hope is that new routes in the region will allow visitors to experience untouched areas of the lakes. If you’re visiting the region, be it on one of our walking holidays, freedom breaks or activity holidays, these new areas are bound to make for fantastic walking next summer.
