Open Bridges made history when for the first time all 13 of the bridges over the River Hull in the UK’s City of Culture 2017 raised, swung or closed simultaneously splitting the city of Hull in two at 20:17 hours on 22nd September 2017. Historic vessels sailed down the River to be met by 21st century tugs.
Open Bridges is an independent Hull/East Yorkshire based project.

Did we have drones on 1975? If not, how did he get those amazing high level shots? Thanks for sharing with us.

Hi Yvonne, in this gallery they’re taken from the top corner of Rank ‘s Clarence Flour Mills opposite the Shotwell building, demolished recently for redevelopment. The river takes a slight bend at that point so it looks as though they’re taken from mid air but actually from the top corner of the mill. Rich and Lou.
