Footpath leading to Thornham Bridge closed until further notice 

25/05/18 - Thornham Point Bridge has been dismantled and completely removed from Footpath 202. The contractors will be starting work on repairing and strengthening the sea defences as the next stage of the project.

22/05/18 - Contractors have been busy dismantling Thornham Point Bridge today.

18/05/18 - Work to begin dismantling the footbridge is due to begin on 21/05/18

Please follow diversion

The footpath leading to the bridge at Thornham Point will remain closed for at least 6 months. We closed the bridge because parts of it are rotten and it is no longer safe to use.

We are working with West Sussex County Council to replace the bridge but it is unlikely to be replaced until 2018, so please use the alternative route shown in blue on the map below until the new bridge is installed.

You can still walk around Thorney Island as the alternative route joins the footpath leading onto the island.
