Great Bardfield Bridge, B1057 Bridge Street, Great Bardfield


Works Location



About the Scheme

Great Bardfield Bridge is located on B1057 Bridge Street in Great Bardfield. It is a Grade II listed structure that carries a single lane over the River Pant.

A number of essential repairs were identified and prioritised for summer 2019.  Following these works, further maintenance maybe required to be programmed as part of a separate phase of works.

The works 

A full closure of the bridge was needed for the works which consisted of brickwork repairs to both wingwalls at the northern (Finchingfield) end of the bridge and localised repairs to other brick buttresses that support the structure.  As the bridge is Grade II listed, the work required listed building consent, which includes the type of brick to be used and the use of lime mortar. 

Works were co-ordinated to take place in the school summer holiday period to limit disruption to the local community.  Bridge Street reopened to traffic Monday 2 September 2019 as planned.

Thank you for your patience and co-operation during these works.
