VIDEO: Matlock Bath’s Jubilee Bridge is reopened

Waiting for Video...

The Jubilee Bridge, in Matlock Bath, has been reopened to the public today following an extensive £210,000 restoration.

Layers of peeling paint have been removed from the iconic bridge and replaced with the original colours it would have had when it was first opened in 1887 to commemorate Queen Victoria’s golden jubilee.

A spokesman for the district council said: “The bridge has been returned to its original four colours - warm stone, blueish grey, deep chocolate and golden yellow – and the great news is that the restoration work by Derbyshire company Tomlinsons has been completed in good time for the district council’s 2014 Matlock Bath Illuminations, which start their 117th season on Saturday, September 6.”

For a full report on the Jubilee Bridge restoration project, see tomorrow’s Matlock Mercury (Thursday, July 24).
