From Bombs to BMX

The Bridge to Nowhere heritage project continued apace in February, with a packed gathering, organised by the Friends of Burgess Park of locals, enthusiasts, and experts, all celebrating the park’s rich history together.

With fascinating talks delivered by our three leading published local historians – Stephen Humphrey, John Beasley and Tim Charlesworth – and a healthy hubbub of shared memories and stories, there was much to enjoy – not to mention photos, maps and refreshments.

The Friends are currently developing a heritage trail to be launched later this year, and would love to hear from you if you’re interested in getting involved.
