The bridge was a project sponsored jointly by Solihull MBC
and Warwickshire CC, being a bridge which crossed a stream
from Solihull to the east and Warwickshire to the west of the
boundary a few miles south of Dorridge.
The bridge allows a local path to be re-instated on the
definitive route, instead of using an unofficial diversion
which has been in use for many years.
Both authorities came and helped with the tasks. We
built a "Kit-Bridge", but on this occasion the kit was a set
of timber planks cut to size, but leaving us to drill all bolt
holes and make a 4 metre long (but narrow) four sleeper
bridge. A handrail was fitted, and waymarks erected by
the bridge and at each end of the stretch of path.
