Building a wooden bridge in woodlands ~ by mikepepler

Slow connection? Watch in lower quality

Mike and Tracy Pepler organised this volunteer project to build a bridge that would be strong enough for a car to drive over.  The bridge was built of timbers from the woodland itself and the volunteers were from the EWB UK unit at Imperial College in London.

Craig Le Privit nothing wrong with that, especially if you're just doing it for fun (not to mention not wanting to kill a stranger) lol.

+user.equalto.Null yes, it was a group of students, none of them had ever built a bridge before, and I pretty much left the design to them, I just did the chainsawing and provided the tools. It's still in use now, so not too bad!
