A new footbridge has been built over a stream and bog in Kettleshulme, thanks to Derbyshire County Council and the generosity of an anonymous donor.
The man, a member of the Peak and Northern Footpaths Society, part funded the bridge near Five Lane Ends.
Vice chair of the society John Harker said: “I proposed the bridge as the area was quite boggy and I had to balance on two slippery logs to get across. It is a very well-used path as it is in a lovely area of open countryside close to Taxal Edge and Windgather Rocks.”
It is hoped the new bridge will make a big difference to walkers in winter.
Over the past seven years, the society, which is run entirely by volunteers, has invested £25,000 in footbridge projects to solve serious problems on the public rights of way network. For more information, visit www.peakandnorthern.org.uk.
