Bridge fails at Chalford


Chalford high street that had been closed for a long time due to a landslip and has only recently reopened was closed again this afternoon as a small bridge over the river (more of a trickle at the moment) collapsed under the weight of a trailer, leaving the towing 4×4 stuck across the road.

Small bridge fails at Chalford

I suppose the positive side to it is that it highlighted a weak bridge that could have failed with somebody driving over it.

A large tractor was on the scene as I walked back past it to presumably pull the trailer back up onto the road.
