Crowther bridges at the Reserve

Dear all,
You will know that the Crowther Road Bridge is closed until later in the year. Crowther Footbridge will also be closed shortly and there will be no access to Cromwell Bottom Nature Reserve during working hours for pedestrians. The only access will be along the canal from Brighouse end (Avocet), or Elland and Rastrick.
During the evenings and all weekends the footbridge will be open as normal. The footbridge will be closed for approximately 4 weeks whilst the road bridge is demolished.
