Bridge Replacement-a step by step guide

Roeburn river's autumn floods  were so high they lifted the bridge up and out of it's anchor points

and smashed it in one piece against the other side of the bank.

This spring new cemented posts were put in with Adam's help

The bracing for the stiles were put on next

The restraining wires were unwound and wrapped around the posts

and put through the drilled holes of the stile

Next comes the "walls"--sheep fencing--

Rod stapling the fencing

The first fence is now fastened

Second fence ready to be lifted up onto the stile posts
Stapling the boards onto the wires....

means hammering upside down..
The gap closes

The finished product
