A NEW BRIDGE has been constructed over the River Dove in Worsbrough, replacing the one that was washed away in 2007.

The steel bridge has been constructed above any future flooding levels, and will allow safe access to Woolley Bank Wood and the surrounding area.

The construction is being funded by various partners, who have all contributed to the costs of the project. They include Barnsley Council, Section 106 monies, the Dearne Valley Landscape Partnership (DVLP) and the Worsbrough Councillors, who have provided funding for the design of the bridge.
