This completes a British Waterways £190,000 project to restore two iron pedestrian bridges which are are listed structures and excellent examples of Stothert & Pitt iron work.
These historic bridges, Wash House Bridge and Bath Top Lock Footbridge have a special connection to Bath because they were the first two structures to be manufactured in the Stothert & Pitt Foundry in the city.
BW's heritage advisor, David Viner, said: “The two bridges are great examples of how canals were constructed to mirror the environments through which they pass. The iron work is wonderful and has a very elegant air to it, matching the surroundings of Bath.”
