Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge To Be Replaced

1 Mins read

Carrick-A-Rede rope bridge is to be replaced over the next 2 days and will be closed to the public. The double hand-railed bridge is replaced every five years. The new bridge was built by Heyn Engineering in Belfast and will be open to the public on Thursday November 16.

A spokesperson for the National Trust said “The bridge will be closed for the replacement today November 14 and Wednesday November 15. The rest of the site will be open for walking, as will the Weighbridge Tea Room.”

Suspended almost 100 ft (30 m) above sea level, the rope bridge was first erected by salmon fisherman 350 years ago. In 2016 Carrick-a-Rede welcomed the highest number of visitors ever to the exhilarating rope bridge experience.
