Greyfriars Bridge in need of some TLC

Hereford's Greyfriars Bridge (also still known as The New Bridge)

The bridge construction began in 1965 the bridge was finally opened in 19th January 1967 by The Right Worshipful The Mayor of Hereford, Alderman Edward Peter Carter.

The Railings which run along both sides of the bridge have deteriorated dramatically over the years and are in desperate need of sandblasting and re-coating. 

We are starting a campaign to hopefully encourage 'Highways England' to give this bridge so much needed renovation works to bring it back to its former glory. The view travelling north and south over the River Wye is beautiful however, the railings and weeds have become a real eyesore.
