Footbridge on Cycle Route
Footbridge on Cycle Route
This footbridge, on NCN Route 7, crosses a little stream that rises about 500 metres to the west (near a sewage works). For the view looking back from the other side, see NS3977 : Footbridge on Cycle Route. The bridge was later replaced; see the last-cited link for details.

A little further along the cycle path, there is another wooden footbridge (NS3977 : Footbridge on Cycle Route), which is similar to the one shown here (and which was also replaced at the same time). After that, the route passes under a blue bridge (visible in the background), by means of which the dual carriageway crosses the River Leven.
