Earlier this Month, October 2012, DTMS Group completed the construction and installation of two flights of steps to connect a new bridleway over Catterick Bridge for North Yorkshire County Council. This work being the final phase to linking the new bridal way to Alfred Wainwright’s existing Coast to Coast Path which crosses the Swale at Catterick Bridge.

The railway bridge across the Swale at Catterick Bridge was built to carry the Catterick Camp Military Railway from its junction with the Richmond Branch of the North Eastern Railway at Brompton on Swale in 1915. The railway closed in 1969 and the bridge was subsequently acquired by Yorkshire Water to carry water, sewage and gas pipes over the river.

The idea of converting the bridge for the use of pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders was put forward by Brompton on Swale in 2000. This would allow these users to avoid the original Catterick Bridge which carries a busy road with a high proportion of HGVs but has narrow footways and is unsuitable for cyclists or horse riders.
