I remember this work taking place, my dad (Kenneth Reid) was a plate-layer for BR, both he and my uncle (Harold Brewin) along with a chap called Edgar worked all sorts of hours on the replacement Bridge. I was at work then but I still had to take his hot dinners wrapped up in a basket to keep it warm. Wonderful memories.
