News: 17 July 2017Humber Bridge given Grade I listed status

Today on the 36th Anniversary of its opening, the Humber Bridge has been given Grade I listed status. The 410 metre-long bridge is the seventh longest suspension bridge in the world and the biggest in the UK. 

Dan Mitchell, Planning Partner at Barton Willmore said

“This is fantastic news for the Humber Bridge and for Hull. This status, which is only given to buildings of the most exceptional architectural and historic interest, now formally gives the bridge national significance.

"Through Historic England listing the iconic structure as an asset we are likely to see many positive effects and should now ensure, like buildings, we celebrate and maximise these as a region, particularly in terms of leisure and tourism.”
