Union Chain Bridge Project: Crossing borders, inspiring communities

This is an ambitious project involving the conservation of the internationally significant historic Union Chain Bridge, the preservation of its intangible heritage and an extensive programme of public engagement.

Union Chain Bridge – which has provided a transport link between Scotland and England for 200 years – received £3.14million from The National Lottery Heritage Fund in September 2019. Co-owned by two local authorities, the Bridge is symbolic of this uniquely collaborative project that comprises of a partnership between Northumberland County Council, Scottish Borders Council, Museums Northumberland and the Friends of the Union Chain Bridge.

The project will forge stronger connections between border communities through the conservation and celebration of the Union Chain Bridge. An ambitious public engagement and learning programme will provide exciting opportunities for people to explore its heritage, stories and setting, raising aspirations in young people, and inspiring a new generation of engineers.
