Project Iron Bridge: saving an industrial icon

by English Heritage in Ironbridge, England, United Kingdom

We did it
On 10th December 2017 we successfully raised £47,545 with 911 supporters in 30 days

The Iron Bridge is one of the wonders of the modern world. After the strain of two centuries, the bridge is at risk. You can help save it.

£40,000 exceeded - and counting

Thank you for supporting Project Iron Bridge; nearly 800 of you have so far rallied to save the bridge and we are hugely grateful to everyone for their generosity.

In response to your overwhelming support, we increased our target to £40,000 to complete the final part of Project Iron Bridge – painting the 378 ton masterpiece. Incredibly, we’ve now reached that target.

The campaign will continue to run until 10 December, and all donations beyond the target will still go towards conserving the Iron Bridge. This will ease the pressure on English Heritage's conservation budget and allow us to spend more on protecting the other sites in our care, the majority of which like the Iron Bridge are free to visit. As a new charity, we rely more than ever before on the support of our visitors, members and donors.

There are still some rewards available and they'll be posted in time for Christmas so please continue to encourage friends and family to get involved. 

Thank you for helping to secure the future of the Iron Bridge.
