About Millenium Bridge:

Spanning a dramatic gorge of the River Eden, this spectacular bridge provides the access between Stenkrith Park at the south end of Kirkby Stephen, to the trackbed of the former railway which forms the new footpath to Hartley.

Designed by local civil engineer, Charles Blackett-Ord, it is constructed of galvanised steel with a pre-cast concrete deck.

With a span of 65 feet, it carries the footpath 42 feet above the raging River Eden below. Completed in 2002, works were seriously delayed by access restrictions imposed during the epidemic of foot and mouth disease in Cumbria during 2001.
