At the end of January 2022 the central section of the 1892 Alton station footbridge was dismantled by Green Oak Carpentry. The components have been put into a dry storage area, awaiting restoration. Although this means that the bridge is no longer a visible entity, it was always our intention to do dismantle it, allowing each part can be assessed. Some will have to be replaced, whilst others will be conserved and put back into use. In the end, the bridge should be as good as new and we hope to give it another 100 years of service.
