From the 9th September, construction on the new Pooley Bridge Bridge starts. During this time there will only be pedestrian access across the river via a new footbridge until March 2020. Pooley Bridge and the Ullswater Way are very much open for business and there will be lots of extra activity going on in the village including a loyalty lottery scheme. There are extra parking spaces on either side of the closure; on the East side in the village itself and on the West side opposite Waterfoot Park.
PLEASE NOTE - there will be a five day period from 9th September when both bridges are being put into place and unfortunately there will no access by foot or car at this time. There will be a free shuttle bus around the diversion, here is the timetable. We apologise for the inconvenience.
