15 Whitefriargate, Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire, HU1 2ER
The river Hull has been bridged in one form or another for over 500 years, enabling the city of Hull to develop on both the East and West sides of the river.
The first talk in this series detailed the variety of bridge types from Kingswood in the North to Scott Street in the heavily industrialised mid reaches of the river. This illustrated how it was essential for industry in Hull for all bridges to allow ships to pass.
Today with the predominance of road transport, the city seems as one entity and travel over the river is taken for granted. Hull's southern most bridges form the essential links to modern industrial developments.
Now, however, global considerations relating to climate change have seen the construction of a Tidal Barrier at the mouth of the river Hull to prevent the flooding of parts of the town and surrounding low lying areas.
