A considerable amount of work has been underway in the Mournes recently . Very useful and much needed path work Is in progress leading up to the col of Slieve Binnian and Lamagan beside Percy Bysshe Quarry.
A new bridge has been completed over Bloody Bridge River at the river junction. It does look somewhat unflattering to the landscape at present but will soon weather in . It was cynically criticized in “Mountain View’s ” by one of its correspondents, perhaps unfairly , it provides safe crossing at the right spot and will look better with time . Money is tight at present and an architectural gem was unlikely to be forthcoming.
if you haven’t been in the area recently, a few photographs are shown below to give an indication of the work .
