Notice is hereby given that the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority has made an Order, the effect of which is to prohibit any person from riding or leading a horse along part of Bridleway No. 516030 in the Parish of Dent in the district of South Lakeland for a distance of approximately 10 metres from 24 November, 2017 until 4 May, 2018 inclusive. The closure will be put into effect when necessary by means of the erection of notices and signs. It is envisaged that the works will be undertaken within 6 months.
The Order is necessaryfor the public safety of horse riders due to the partial slump of the western side of the bridge caused bya crack in one ofthe four main supporting beams. The bridge is safe under lighter pedestrian or cyclist load, but there is significant risk of further failure of the beam and potentially other beams under the heavier loading of a horse and rider. The bridlewayistherefore unsafe for persons riding or leading a horse.
