Full Restoration of Friar Gate Bridge

The ornate bridge, constructed by Andrew Handyside and Co, was part of the western extension of the Great Northern Railway and opened in 1878.
When the line closed in 1967, the grade two-listed structure began to deteriorate. It was sold by British Rail to the city council for £1 on the understanding it would be looked after by the authority. The Friends of Friar Gate Bridge was formed with goal of fully restoring the structure which has been described as in a "disgraceful state" by Derby Civic Society.
