The ancient stone footbridge on Exmoor has been rebuilt. Some steps had been washed away just months after £10,000 had been spent repairing damage from previous flooding.
But local businesses are upset it took more than seven weeks to repair it and say trade has been badly damaged.
Part of the famous Tarr Steps have been swept away AGAIN.
The Exmoor landmark was rebuilt in February at a cost of ten thousand pounds after a storm last December.
The steps are an ancient monument, but also an official highway, so the cost of repairs falls on Somerset County Council.
David Woodland reports.
The cost of repairing the ancient bridge and surrounding pathways at Tarr Steps will run into thousands of pounds.
Somerset County Council and Exmoor National Park say the landmark on Exmoor has been affected by landslips, fallen trees and erosion from recent flooding.
One of Exmoor's most iconic landmarks has been swept away in the floods. The ancient clapper bridge, Tarr Steps, was demolished when fallen trees pushed up against the giant stones. 3/4 of the bridge has gone and will have to be rebuilt.
