Once at the bridge, I made my way through long grass and weeds to the fence line hoping to find a gap or to be able to follow the fence downhill and arrive at the water’s edge. I was relieved when the fences stopped giving me open access to the land below. The Derwent River was clearly visible so I continued scrambling downhill until I stumbled across a track which I followed under the bridge.
Once under the bridge I discovered a set of concrete steps which would have made descent easy. To access these from the bridge pathway above, walk to the left of the plaque and then follow the bridge wall downhill until the steps are reached. There are no gates to block progress.
