Flood damage and roadworks update etc

Portinscale suspension footbridge is now officially reopened, so the walk to Portinscale and round the lake is easier.

Cafe at Nichol End Marine has now re-opened after flood damage repair and revamp.

Roadworks in centre of Keswick effectively cut town in half as far as car users are concerned BUT does NOT affect pedestrians/cyclists and all businesses still open .

New play area in Fitz Park open.

Pleased to hear things are making progress. I'm coming up for a week's break near Keswick very shortly, so that's useful information for me as well.

Any idea how they're getting on in Cockermouth? I was thinking I should pop over there for a pub lunch and a pint or two of Jennings at some stage, just to show some solidarity and all that.

No problems at all in Keswick now.

There are a couple of footbridges on footpaths in the Newlands Valley area out of action which means a couple of paths are closed. These dont cause major problems.

The road bridge at Little Braithwaite ( on the route between Braithwaite and Ullock ) is down so no through route. This should be taken into account if trying to walk back to Portinscale from the Braithwaite area.
