Reigate and Banstead Borough Council Coat of Arms, Reigate Hill Footbridge
Reigate and Banstead Borough Council Coat of Arms, Reigate Hill Footbridge
Over a period of 6 months from July 2011 to January 2012, Reigate Hill Footbridge, which carries the North Downs Way over the A217, underwent a major refurbishment. As part of this the Borough Council coats of arms, situated at the centre of each balustrade of the bridge, were replaced with new castings. Here is the one on the southern balustrade, with the fresh paint sparkling in the sun.

The plastic sheeting is protecting the upper rail from damage as final clearance takes place of the refurbishment site, which was taking place this weekend. Unfortunately there is unlikely to be an opportunity to take a similar photo with the sheeting removed, as I was standing in the middle of the A217 to take it, making use of the closure of the road over the weekend (but see TQ2652 : Reigate and Banstead Borough Council Coat of Arms, Reigate Hill Footbridge for slightly wider photo, taken a few weeks later, without the plastic sheeting).

For a full description of the coat of arms, see LinkExternal link.
