We aim to enable everyone to enjoy a safe, active, shared crossing over our beautiful canal.

Our proposal is located in Bathampton between King Edward’s School playing fields and Tyning Road, connecting walkers and cyclists with the canal, city and beyond. It would offer a much safer alternative to the existing, dangerous horseshoe bridge.

We have set up a charitable association and put forward a pre-planning application to B&NES Council and the Canal & River Trust. We are also holding community events. Please read more about our project and give your views and suggestions.  We will put the public response together with the outcome of the current pre-planning process to progress to a full planning application.

Through voluntary work, reduced rates and cash donations we have raised the equivalent of £18,000. This has paid for the feasibility, pre-planning phase, outline bridge design and our community exhibition. Not included in this figure is the input of the three volunteer Trustees who give their time and skills for free. Read more about them in the blog.

If you support what you see today, please help us raise a further £10,000 to take the project through planning.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. Please review our proposals and leave some feedback on our Proposals and Feedback page.

The Trustees – Fiona Powell, Cheryl Cook and Terry Wagstaff
