Derby’s heritage under threat as five historic buildings put on at-risk register

In response to the article one of the Trustees said:

Friends of Friar Gate Bridge is continuing to work hard behind the scenes towards the restoration of the Bridge.  With the support of Derby City Council (the owner of the Bridge) we are preparing a bid for Heritage Lottery Scoping Project Funding as a next step towards determining a viable long-term use for the Bridge and its abutments.  The aim is to restore the Bridge so that it becomes an asset to the area once again, and provide it with an income stream to fund its upkeep so that it will not fall into disrepair again… 

Please consider joining Friends of Friar Gate Bridge to show your support for this lovely landmark.
