Paxton's Bridge Restoration

Working with specialist stone masons WM Longreach have been restoring Paxton’s Bridge at the National Botanic Garden of Wales. The bridge originally built in the 1790s was used as one of the main carriage drives through to Paxton’s Tower, built in Nelson’s honour, which still stands today and where guests could be entertained with stunning views over the Tywi valley.  Current works include the parapet reconstruction, re pointing and a new coping.
