09-10-2012 : RESTORATION ON THE STAFFORDSHIRE AND WORCESTERSHIRE CANAL

LimeKiln Bridge near Kidderminster on the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal is currently being restored to its former glory.

The structure will be rebuilt using new attractive brickwork and the project will enhance the overall appearance and take the bridge back to its original form.

Tony Harvey, head of enterprise from the Canal and River Trust, said LimeKiln Bridge is a really popular canal crossing point for walkers and cyclists from the local area but over time it has become slightly tatty and the metal bridge sides are starting to corrode and now need to be replaced.

Using traditional heritage techniques we will be rebuilding the bridge walls using new brick which should closely match with the original 200 year old brickwork.

Councillor Anne Hingley from Wyre Forest District Councils cabinet member for place shaping said It will be great to see this bridge restored and look more in keeping with the other heritage bridges in the area.

Brick built bridges are symbolic of the waterways and this bridge provides easy access to the canal for many residents that live alongside it and.

Once fully restored, it will be a much treasured local landmark.

To mark the completion of the project special carvings will be etched into the brickwork to mark the year the bridge was restored.

This is a tradition when building bridges and is in keeping with the bridges in the local area.
