The village is beautiful and the setting for the bridge is spectacular. Even though the bridge is covered, we were able to see bits of the bridge, stripped right back to its bare bones where the workers were refitting. Also worth a short drive to...More

Unfortunately this attraction is undergoing a £3.5 refit and inspection so was covered with protective skin, so not able to appreciate, pity will have to try next year.

Thought we would see this famous bridge as we were in the area. Unfortunately it was completely covered in scaffolding as it was undergoing maintenance. Maybe will give it a look if we're in the area again sometime

The bridge and toll house are free to visit. There is scaffolding which is a shame but walking around looking at the views was better than I expected. You get a real sense of history looking at the bridge and area. Well worth a visit....More
