This has been playing on my mind for a while now... I'm looking for somewhere that I can rig up a pretty epic ropeswing. I'm from the south west so the closer the better but I would travel for it. I need some where where I can secure the line safely and not get in trouble for doing it. I would also need a ledge or something to jump from. I guess it would depend on the spot as to what gear I would need too but the less the better. Any ideas...

We used to do one off Bickleigh viaduct.

Clifton Suspension Bridge is almost traditional.

Im afraid this suggestion isn't particularly great for you.

But the one I plan on doing is under barton bridge. It's over the Manchester ship canal. It's deffo some crazy night time/early morning job. Also there is a motorway that runs over the top of it. There are catwalks that run under the bridge though, access is a little creative (I think there are two ways).

He's a video.

It's f*cking epic.

P.S not available for a little while but really want to get this done in the summer :).

Cheer's for the head's up. There's defiantly some food for though there. I think Bickleigh viaduct looks wicked. Roll on summer!

Good shout, I assume the train line isn't in use....

Almost sure it's a well used line...

Really? I suppose that's why they've kept things neat and not going over the tracks.
