Canon's Mill Foot Bridge

New foot bridge over the Chess at Canon's Mill
Along the mill bypass near Canon’s Mill in Waterside, a stretch of the river had been forced underground through a section of pipes to enable a footpath to cross the river. The Impress the Chess project worked with the Environment Agency to get the pipes removed, opening up the river once again. A footbridge was installed in April 2008 to provide uninterrupted footpath access along the by-pass, improving both the river habitat and accessibility.
