Journey up the River Hull in 2015

Thanks to Mal Scott for these evocative images of an autumn day in 2015 travelling under all of the bridges over the river in a small pleasure craft taken looking north up the Hull.

Click on Millenium Bridge to see the full picture and scroll through to travel up the river past each bridge north to Ennerdale:

The Open Bridges: A River Full of Stories exhibition is open at Hull Maritime Museum until the end of the year. The films will be on continuous loop throughout the free exhibition, open Monday – Saturday, 10am – 4.30pm, and Sunday, 11am – 4pm.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed to our ‘Open Bridges: A River Full Of Stories’ project. We are preparing the presentation book for Hull and East Yorkshire libraries and museums and River Full of Stories film for later this year.

Open Bridges made history when for the first time all 13 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, met by 21st century tugs, to the sound of a new musique concrète work by composer John Stead.

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