Unfortunately, Giant Hogweed is once again growing on the riverbank near to the bridge, therefore WE STRONGLY ADVISE AGAINST FOLLOWING THE ROUTE VIA SLUTCHERS LANE. We recommend that between March and September, visitors to the bridge should only follow the route through the works. Click here to see this route in detail.
Information Board in Bank Park
Sunday 4th December, 2016
FoWTB are pleased to announce that after working closely with Warrington Borough Council, we now have an information board about the bridge in a prominent location within Bank Park!
We held a brief ceremony on a bitterly cold afternoon in Bank Park on Saturday 26th November, where the information board was unveiled by two former Crosfield Employees - Arthur Jones, who was Civil Project Engineer for the company, and Geoff Gleave, who used to service the electrics on the bridge - and our youngest supporter William Barker, aged just 14 months!
Here is the moment the information board was unveiled...
...after which we all retreated into the warmth of the Gallery Cafe (sadly, no longer there) at Bank Quay House for tea/coffee and cake!
As well as the information board, the Council also very kindly approved an additional fingerpost pointing in the general direction of the bridge!
