its lovely... and has the "stump" been recoated?  was going to suggest something be done as it was looking a bit tired!

Can you tell me how it was financed Mark? I'm an everyday user of Brabyns and I've had a lot of comments about it.. in particular the use of money on it when things like the dog bins have been removed and the road is so worn out. Theres a lot of frustration amongst park users there at mo and i suppose _to a degree_ ..human nature and all that.. theyve forgotten how awful it all was before you and yours got your hands on it!

The Iron Bridge Viewing Platform is now completed and yesterday was the first opportunity to take some photos. I must admit to being very pleased with the result: www.marple-uk.com/ironbridge

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:

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!

Excellent Mark !! look forward to seeing it.  how long will it take?

Shame the roads totally wrecked again now :(

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?

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.

To read more and to see the design visit www.marple-uk.com/ironbridge

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.
