Work to restore Clumber Park ornamental bridge starts next week


Work to restore Clumber Park’s damaged bridge begins on Monday 14th October.

The 250-year-old bridge was vandalised in 2018 when a car hit the structure and was then found burnt out.

Police divers used the incident as a training exercise and recovered the stone from the lake.

A spokesperson for the park said:

‘The work to restore our ornamental bridge begins on Monday 14 October. As a result, there will be extended closures in place with no access over the bridge for pedestrians and cyclists on Monday 14 & Tuesday 15 October.

‘The day has arrived, when we begin work to restore our ornamental bridge. With help from our partner contractors we are going to give the bridge a new lease of life.

‘Please take a look at the map to help you plan your visit, there will be members of our team at the bridge every day during the next two weeks: to answer your questions. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and hope you enjoy seeing the changes in the coming months as our beautiful bridge is fully restored.’
