Exhibition to reveal mysteries of Bridge Works

A new exhibition will unveil the mysteries of one of the country’s oldest charities.

The Rochester Bridge Trust has provided and maintained crossings of the River Medway for more than 600 years – with the first bridge on the site built almost 2,000 years ago – but there is still much that remains unknown about the organisation among the general public, as visitors to the Bridge Works exhibition will discover.

Telling the story of the crossings that have helped shape the Medway area and the organisation that owns and looks after them, the free exhibition will take place in the newly restored crypt at Rochester Cathedral. There will also be a selection of activities to engage young visitors.

The exhibition opens on Monday, 23rd October, when a series of extra free activities and challenges for children to take part in will also be available.

It will run until June 2018, and is open daily from 10am until 4pm. Find out more about the exhibition at www.rbt.org.uk/bridgeworks.
