Stock bridge for bog management

Bridges should be strong enough and wide enough to allow sheep and quad bikes safe and easy access across them.

The use of high quality second-hand materials such as telegraph poles or railway sleepers is acceptable, as long as the bridge is likely to remain fit for use for a period of at least 5 years. Otherwise, all materials must be new and any woodwork treated.

This capital item will assist with bog management. It can also be used, where justified, to benefit other habitats.
