Sunday 11 September

Doors Open Day: 130 visitors came to see conservation work taking place on Brunelís wrought iron opening bridge and view the test plates that were hot riveted on site. Unfortunately the location was wrongly given on the leaflet so many people told us they had great difficulty in finding it. 25 booked for a guided walk from ss Great Britain at 2pm. We received many positive comments about our work. Donations very encouraging, as was the feedback from visitors. A sunny day fortunately.
We had to hold it on the Sunday as the bridge was totally inaccessible on the Saturday due to the Tour of Britain terminating in Clifton, meaning many roads were closed
