Woodside Bridge Appeal

Update: Woodside Bridge - Funding Secured & Woodside is reinstated!

Exmoor National Park Authority and Lyn Community Development Trust have been campaigning to raise funds for a new footbridge at Woodside on the East Lyn Valley, near Lynmouth since 2017 with a formal appeal launched in 2018.

Thanks to the overwhelming generosity of local people and visitors, including a fabulous individual donation of £15,000 the funds needed to replace Woodside Bridge have been secured. Our warmest thanks go to everyone who has contributed to the appeal.

In May 2020 the new bridge was reinstated to allow visitors and residents alike to once again enjoy the short easy circuit from Lynmouth along the lower reaches of the east Lyn river and the crossing to Middleham Memorial Gardens (honouring losses from the terrible  Lynmouth Flood of 1952).
