An early C19 canal bridge

This iconic bridge is one of a number of listed heritage assets on the Pocklington Canal in North Yorkshire. The HLF funded project of six weeks duration involved the training of 16 volunteers in skills including, cement removal, brick replacement, flush pointing and all of the associated skills involved in the use of lime mortars. The successful project saw the refurbishment of major sections of the bridge using only traditional materials & methods. The volunteers will go on to ensure the survival of other assets on this canal length. This project was a runner up in the Canals & Rivers Trust 2018 Living Waterways Awards, Building Conservation Category.
