THE PROPOSED BRIDGE AT DERWEN GORNEL. To the Editor of THE NORTH WALES TIMES.' SIR, As, no doubt, you are aware, a resolution was passed by the Denbigh Town Council, someyearsago, in favour of erecting a bridge over the river near Derwen Gomel. Like many other resolutions affecting the outskirts of the borough, this has remained a dead letter, no attempt having been made to carry it out. A few months ago, the matter was brought be- fore the Council in the form of a petition, signed by a large number of the farmers of the borough, whose business, and the locality of their homes compel them to go through this river, in favour of the construction of a bridge. Not the slightest notice was taken of the peti- tion, and the river still remains unbridged and in a state of danger to all those who have to travel on this road. As an instance of the danger connected with this spot, I might say that an accident hap- pened-not the first by any means—on Satur- day night last. A man was returning from town, with a donkey, loaded with this and hie family's weekly provisions, which were con- tained in a sack. The stream being so deep and strong, the animal naturally refused to walk through, and the man attempted to lead it through the water, walking himself over the narrow stone, which is the only way to cross the river dryfooted. Unfortunately, the water swept the animal off its feet, and carried it underneath the plat, and had it not been for the assistance of two or three men, no doubt it would have been drowned. All the provisions were spoiled, and rendered utterly worthless. Carters who have young horses in their teams, have to wade through the water, which is frequently up to their knees, and afterwards have to travel miles in their wet garments. Is this not a case not only of necessity, but of urgency. We in the country are ratepayers as well as the inhabitants of the town, but it is extremely little indeed that we get in return for the money that we are forced to pay. Hoping that this letter will induce the Coun- cil to take immediate action. I remain faithfully yours, A COUNTRY RATEPAYER.
