The Brabyns Park Discovery Trail booklet can now be downloaded from The Marple Website so that you can print your own copies. See www.marple-uk.com/ironbridge

PS - I understand that 200 copies of the booklet were recently delivered to Marple Library, so you can still get an original copy from there at the moment.

We have now been able to add the Iron Bridge Documentary to youtube in fairly high definition. It's had to be split into two parts as it is longer than the maximum 10 minutes allowed.

To view, follow these links:

Iron Bridge Restoration Project (Part 1 of 2) :

Iron Bridge Restoration Project (Part 2 of 2) :

Now embedded in the main site too, see www.marple-uk.com/ironbridge and follow one of the links to the Documentary.

It's been some time since there was any news on the Iron Bridge Restoration Project but at last we can report that long-planned improvements to the viewing platform near the bridge will commence on 7 November 2011.

I don't know how long it will take yet - am waiting for an answer to that myself.

Do you mean the road from the bridge to Compstall, or in the park itself?

in the park itself.. leading from the rec centre to the bridge.  Regular events and some very large caravans and trucks (huge ones from the recent sales show to the forces and emergency services.. cant rem what they were selling!) have destroyed it!

Some photos of the work in progress on the Viewing Platform have been added to the Virtual Tour this morning. The lads doing the work reckon they'll be finished by next Thursday but that won't included the railings, which are being fitted by others:
