Leigh Woods Vaults: Two Hour Technical Hard Hat Tour

Description

When the entrance to twelve forgotten chambers hidden inside the Leigh Woods abutment of the Clifton Suspension Bridge in was rediscovered in 2002, this surprise find presented a unique challenge to the engineers who had to map, inspect and maintain them. This is your chance to take a look inside.
 
Join volunteer guide and qualified civil engineer, David, who will give an insight into the features of the bridge, with a focus on the Leigh Woods abutment. You’ll also learn about the rediscovery of the vaults before donning a hard hat, descending a ladder and taking a look for yourself.
