SAVE OUR FOOTBRIDGE!
The campaign to save the 1892 wooden station footbridge was launched in August 2017. We have until October 2018 to raise enough money to remove the centre section to store it off-site so that it can be restored and replaced as funds allow. We have split the project into three phases: Rescue; Refurb; Restore. We have set a funding target of £170k for the first phase. We already have a donation pledge of £12,000 under our belt, so we are looking for people who also wish to see the footbridge retained who can give a donation towards saving it for posterity. If you would like to make a donation, please download our pdf leaflet - the link is at the bottom of this page.
We have produced a prospectus for our bridge project, both for your interest, and also for potential donors to read. It explains the three phases of the project, as well as a brief description of the history and where we are today. You can download it here:
