Bridge re-opens after ten years
Residents of Marcham in Oxfordshire are celebrating the reopening of a bridge after a 10-year closure. Greenford reinstated the Grade II 18th century bridge, making it safe once again. The 2-span arched structure is constructed in limestone with dressed stone quoins. The low parapet walls are in rubble stone, jointed with lime mortar. Works included water control, masonry repairs, installation of stainless-steel anchors, and the construction of a new structural bridge deck. As principal contractor, Greenford completed the project within 10 weeks, and below budget.
