Newborough bridge: March 2010

Burton Conservation Volunteers helped Newborough residents to install a new bridge across the River Swarbourn to connect two riverside play areas. As the bridge framework was pre-constructed, it took an army of volunteers and helpers to manoeuvre it into position! We also built a new wooden fence along the top of the river bank, and then laid a new path to connect to the new bridge.

Since our visit in March, the finishing touches have been applied, new play equipment installed in the upper area, and the Riverbank Park was officially opened in June.
