Trinity Cut Bridge, which is also known locally as the donkey bridge because it is the route the donkeys take which offer rides on the beach, is 130 years old this year.

Councillors Chris Matthews and Richard Harrap, who represent Bridlington North, said: “We are very pleased to see the refurbishment and painting of Trinity Cut Bridge.

“The seafront cast iron bridge built in 1888 connects Alexandra Promenade with Beaconsfield Promenade and has been in place for 130 years.

“The bridge which is exposed to the severe north easterly weather will be given a new coat of paint in time for the main holiday season.”

“We are impressed with the work done by ERYC’s contractors and hope the bridge continues to serve the town for another 130 years.”
