Open Bridges made history when for the first, and only time, all 13 of the bridges over the River Hull raised, swung or closed simultaneously splitting the city of Hull in two at 20:17 hours on the autumn equinox, 22nd September 2017.

LATEST NEWS 2018: We are delighted to introduce our new Open Bridges project, ‘Open Bridges: A River Full Of Stories’, gathering stories to preserve the heritage of the River Hull, its bridges and the people and vessels which have used it over the years.

We’ve been collecting stories throughout July – October and are now preparing the River Full Of Stories film, exhibition and book.

Open Bridges is an independent Hull/East Yorkshire based project.
