At Last! Gowan Bridge was officially opened today.
Gowan Bridge was severely damaged in Storm Desmond, back at the beginning of December 2015. Yes, that’s nearly 18 month ago!!
It has taken for ever to re-build and then finally re-opened, which has had a severe impact to businesses in Staveley.
But that’s now in the past. I am glad it’s open, but I will miss the quiet of Main Street.
Here are some pictures from the afternoon.
