Opening the new bridge at Heddon Valley

The National Trust has improved accessible routes around the beautiful Heddon Valley with a new bridge, thanks to a £3,000 grant from the Heritage Lottery Funded Heart of Exmoor Scheme.

The National Trust’s off-road accessibility scooters are some of the most popular in Devon – enabling easier access along the wooded valleys to reach the coastal heath and the famous Heddon’s Mouth at the shore.

Jason Ball, the Heart of Exmoor Scheme manager said: “Making moorland landscapes more accessible has been an important part of our work, so this bridge is a fine legacy that helps the National Trust’s fantastic work welcoming visitors to this gorgeous location in North Devon.”
