The bridge is a Grade II* listed structure spanning the river Trent in Nottingham. Working with specialists Cleveland Bridge, we undertook works to the applied decoration including intricate painting and gilding.
The bridge was constructed in 1871 and widened in 1926 and carries both vehicular and pedestrian access across the river. The project required specialist maintenance works in order to preserve the cast iron, steel and stone structure.
The project required the reapplication of paint to the metal surfaces, intricate painting of the many detailed rosettes as well as the application of gold leaf to the cornice and ornamental roundels. All of which was carried out from the complex scaffolding erected over the sides of the bridge, above the water.
The rosettes adorn both elevations of the balustrade and appear along the entire length of the bridge. Varied in design with different colour schemes, our experienced team carried out the detailed artwork of these charming centre pieces.
