Vistitor Car Parking in Pooley Bridge:
Construction Works have started to construct the new Pooley Bridge structure over the River Eamont which means that Dumallard car park, to the west side of the village is now closed for visitor parking.   To compensate for the temporary loss of Dunmallard car park, Cumbria County Council have provided a temporary car park, 100 yards before the junction leaving the B5302. This provides free car parking for up to 30 vehicles, with a shuttle bus to allow visitors to travel safely into the village. The car park also has access to the footpath, which remains open if visitors wish to walk to the village.   Car parking is signed posted along the B5302.
The works to rebuild the bridge have been planned in a way to minimise disruption to the local community, businesses and tourism in the area, whilst this exciting project is completed. Pooley Bridge will remain open for business throughout the construction period. 

The next stakeholder event for the Pooley Bridge project will be held on Wednesday 20TH November at the site compound offices next to the temporary car park.   Please Note: On this occasion, the location is changing so visitors can view the material samples we have on site which are being used for the new structure.

 The drop in session will be from 2pm – 4pm.
