Hi Stewart,

Just a tip for future reference - the best way to determine whether a page has already been created for a site is to add a page (without publishing it), place the pin on the map where you think the bridge is at, and then click on the “What’s Here?” button just below the map. Several different places and bridges will come up and you can check to see if the bridge is already listed.

Happy bridgehunting!

Paul
