Synopsis of Work Undertaken

Allt Damh Bridge (northernmost) was stabilised only, and work done to protect the abutment on the south side from flood damage when the burn was/is in spate. Previously much of the stone work of the bridge had been re-used elsewhere!

Delavine Bridge was damaged by undermining of the north east section of the footings with the burn migrating. The bridge was largely intact, and was jacked back into place, new footings and roadway replacing the damaged section. The rest of the bridge was stabilised with the original cobble surface recovered with turves to protect the surface and the bridge from too much water percolation.

Tornahaish Bridge was the best preserved, with the bridge still taking vehicular traffic before the start of the project! A new ford was established, and boulders to prevent vehicle movements. The bridge surfaces were repointed, and should now be stabilised for another century of so.

Project management by Gordon Enterprise Trust and Enterprise North East Trust who undertake a wide range of tourism and community projects at the behest of local groups.
