Rope Bridge rope work at Catton hall

Longest Rope Bridge in the UK

40m across the River Trent for a private client.

The result of successful fulfilment of planning consents with both the local and river authorities, we were able to create a river crossing across the River Trent for a private land-owner for access further into his estate.

Creating what we believe to be the longest Rope Bridge in the UK at 40m [explore also the Jungle Rope Bridge at The Lost Gardens of Helligan, which is 100ft/30m]. Importantly, this Rope Bridge at Catton Hall is for private use and forms a real connection across a river within a private estate [for shooting parties] which would otherwise be a several miles car journey.

  • Structured with a series of decks and platforms at both ends to create additional height and an attractive entrance and exit.

  • Enjoyed by the whole family, both kids, parents and grand-parents.

  • A natural blend within it's location in treated timbers and natural coloured ropes.
