Pooley ‘New’ Bridge

Pooley ‘New’ Bridge

On Friday 23 October 2020, Pooley ‘New’ Bridge opened to vehicles and pedestrians, nearly five years to the day since the old, stone bridge fell in the wake of Storm Desmond. And the first to cross it? A flock of sheep driven by local farming family, the Coulstons, over the bridge to pastures new – something that has been impossible for over a year…



Your Pooley ‘New’ Bridge – Book of Memories!

We’ve been so moved by all the stories behind why over 300 people wanted to purchase a paver to mark personal memories of Pooley Bridge, we’ve pulled all those stories together along with a brief history of the bridge at Pooley into a beautiful book – The Pooley ‘New’ Bridge Book of Memories. It’s available to buy now from Pooley Bridge’s beloved new bookshop – Verey Books.
