New bridge plan for Cuttle Brook near Thame

Cuttle Brook bridge The existing bridge is now in poor condition

A new bridge is to be built to improve access to an Oxfordshire beauty spot.

The Trust for Oxfordshire's Environment has awarded a £5,000 grant to help replace the bridge over the Cuttle Brook near Thame.

The existing structure, in a 30-acre nature reserve close to the town centre, is now in a poor condition after 15 years of use.

Work on the new bridge is due to be carried out by the Cuttle Brook Volunteers group in the new year.
