Woodside Bridge on East Lyn near Lynmouth unsafe

The bridge has now been closed Credit: Exmoor National Park

Woodside Bridge on the East Lyn near Lynmouth has had to be closed following a recent inspection by Exmoor National Park Authority which has revealed it to be unsafe.

In the meantime, members of the public are advised to use the Tors Road footbridge as an alternative means of crossing the East Lyn.

Our main priority in the first instance was to stop people using the bridge and for safety reasons, we now plan to have it removed as soon as practically possible. We will then be looking into the options for replacing it.
