New Website Launched!

Wednesday 20th October, 2021

We've launched our new website! We hope that you like it - please do let us know if you find any parts of the site not working correctly or if you have any pictures or videos of the bridge that we could use.


Giant Hogweed

Sunday 3rd May, 2021

Unfortunately, Giant Hogweed is once again growing on the riverbank near to the bridge, therefore WE STRONGLY ADVISE AGAINST FOLLOWING THE ROUTE VIA SLUTCHERS LANE. We recommend that between March and September, visitors to the bridge should only follow the route through the works. Click here to see this route in detail.


Information Board in Bank Park

Sunday 4th December, 2016

FoWTB are pleased to announce that after working closely with Warrington Borough Council, we now have an information board about the bridge in a prominent location within Bank Park!

We held a brief ceremony on a bitterly cold afternoon in Bank Park on Saturday 26th November, where the information board was unveiled by two former Crosfield Employees - Arthur Jones, who was Civil Project Engineer for the company, and Geoff Gleave, who used to service the electrics on the bridge - and our youngest supporter William Barker, aged just 14 months!


Here is the moment the information board was unveiled...


...after which we all retreated into the warmth of the Gallery Cafe at Bank Quay House for tea/coffee and cake (the coffee is amazing from there!)

As well as the information board, the Council also very kindly approved an additional fingerpost pointing in the general direction of the bridge!
