Hidden Histories of the Humber Bridge

Hidden Histories of the Humber Bridge aimed to focus on and share the impact of building the iconic, Grade 1 listed structure and its place within communities across the Humber region. The ultimate goal is to create an online archive, which will be fully accessible. The project, which has been awarded £65,700 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), involves recruiting volunteers to talk to residents, architects, engineers, labourers and management to capture experiences and feelings about the bridge.
