Butterfly Bridge

  • Description

    "This footbridge is near the village of Winlaton Mill. It links a path leading from the main road with the south side of the river to the Derwent Walk. The bridge was replaced in June 2011, following flood damage on September 6 2008, when the old footbridge was swept away. The previous bridge dated from 1950. The name Butterfly Bridge supposedly comes from the fact that the Derwent Valley was a butterfly collector's paradise and enthusiasts began their expeditions from the bridge.
