SPAB Scotland – Visit to Union Bridge **POSTPONED**
4 April - 08:00 - 17:00£5
**This event has been postponed until further notice.
On the 200 year anniversary, join The Friends of Union Bridge and SPAB Scotland on a visit to the Union Chain Bridge. Following successful campaigning and fundraising missions, the 1820 wrought iron suspension bridge is undergoing extensive repair works. The unique conservation approach involves the complete dismantling and rebuilding of the bridge. With a guided tour by a member of The Friends, we will hear about how the structure was built, the repair progress and proposals, the challenges that the campaign faced, and the desires for the future of Captain Samuel Brown’s Union Chain Bridge.
There will be activities for children at the Honey Pot Cafe, including the opportunity to build their own bridges.
Public transport to the site is limited, so please indicate if you require assistance arranging transport by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
