Built 1894. Replaced 1978.

 

Evidence that these were Harper bridges: definite

 

Three bridges were built over the River Freshney as it flowed through the Duke of York Public Gardens at Grimsby. The gardens were laid out in 1894. Two had spans of 50 feet (15.24 m) and one of 35 feet (10.67 m); all were 4 feet (1.22 m) in width.

 

All three were replaced by steel and concrete beam bridges, although the smaller one to an island retains the posts and transom of its Harper predecessor immediately adjacent but unconnected to the present bridge.
