Ornamental Bridge Restoration Project Manager Rob Brough's view

This week's update comes from Rob Brough - Bridge Restoration Project Manager. "The National Trust exists to look after special places “forever, for everyone” so it was heartbreaking to see the damage to Clumber’s very special 18th Century bridge in March 2018. I am passionate about our built heritage and the way it can tell stories and bring history to life. That is why I am so pleased to be involved in the work to repair this important piece of Clumber’s history. I’ve got nothing but admiration for my colleagues Sara, Torri, Claire and Kate who are going above and beyond the call of duty and are putting themselves through a gruelling 24 hours in undertaking the Big Push to raise funds for additional conservation work on the bridge. 'Little and often' maintenance is so important to the longevity of our built environment and it is very often the lack of this which leads to major disrepair or loss of a building entirely. It is just this type of work that the big push is raising money for and the funds raised will help conserve the bridge’s future so that others may enjoy its beauty and the gorgeous views from it."
