Open: Crook oLune Bridge

The East pedestrian and cycleway bridge at the Crook O’ Lune was set to reopen today after a restoration, costing about £1m, was completed by Lancashire County Council.

Extensive work on the listed structure began in March to replace the timber deck, repoint masonry and repaint ironwork.

County Councillor Marcus Johnstone, cabinet member for environment, planning, and cultural services, said: “I’m sure that regular visitors, as well as the thousands of people who come each year from further afield, will appreciate the high quality and sympathetic restoration to this historic bridge.

“The Crook O’ Lune is a beautiful part of Lancashire - the county council’s major investment to improve the bridge and surrounds will support local tourism and ensure future generations will be able to enjoy the area.

“We’re sorry for the inconvenience while the bridge has been closed, and thank people for their patience, but hope they’ll agree that the result has been worth it.”
