About this Project
The Corporation Bridge is a Scherzer rolling lift bascule bridge over the Old Dock (Alexandra Dock) in Grimsby. The current vertical swing bridge was built in 1925.

Whilst on site a series of materials identification exercises were undertaken to satisfy the project team that conservation principals were being followed.
