Beningbrough Hall's south bridge to be restored

Conservation experts are to restore a 300-year-old bridge which is at risk of collapse.

The south bridge at 18th Century Beningbrough Hall near York will be dismantled brick by brick before being rebuilt.

The arch of the bridge has been distorted due to the settlement of the adjacent house.

The National Trust, which runs the property, said the restoration project would be completed by October.

During the restoration work structural problems will be corrected and damage caused by frost and water will be repaired.
