SAVING THE GLASSBY ARCH.
We are actively organising the demolition and rebuild of the grade 2 listed structure Glassby Arch. This masterpiece was carved and erected by Robert Glassby who became Queen Victoria’s sculptor. It was his passing out piece for becoming a master sculptor. The arch had been sequestrated by the National crime Agency as it was on a property owned by a criminal. We have already had to fight off Architectural thieves and mounds of red tape. Bridge Property are overseeing the whole operation for the people of Mexborough. it will over the summer be erected on the Alms Houses site where Glassby was born. PLANNING PERMISSION NOW OBTAINED. HOPEFULLY SPRING 2015 RECONSTRUCTION
Pleased to announce the success of the Turkeys for christmas scheme – No visit for Mr fox 2014/15 this time….
Despite charitable efforts from Adfab Engineering Ltd, Councillor Ken J Wyatt, Brearley and Co Accountants, ourselves and other volunteers, the scheme has been brought to an end. Unfortunatly despite the 2 metre high fencing, foxes dug a tunnel underneath and massacred all 11 of the birds while they roosted.
Robert Glassby Board unveiling.
OCTOBER 2013 – Bridge Property Management Ltd were co sponsors of the new plaque erected on Church Street at Mexborough to recognise the birthplace of Queen Victoria’s favourite sculptor, Robert Glassby. Glassby was the creator of many of London’s finest monuments. The lady pictured (Mrs Piper) is Glassby’s modern day relative.
Assisting to clear footpaths
Bridge Property Director Giles Brearley and local councillor Ken Wyatt volunteered themselves to help clear the public footpath which follows the river Don connecting Swinton and Mexborough. During the recent gales a tree had blown over and blocked the path completely. The path is well used and needed fast action. Bridge Property has a whole array of toolware and the problem was soon resolved.
Sponsors of Swinton Heritage Local History Group.
The group do invaluable work for helping record and preserve the town’s past. We are proud to be the main sponsor.
Mexborough Alms Houses Lost Gardens Project-
Bridge Property Management used their connections with contractors to help reclaim a lost garden. The land at the rear of the Alms Houses on Church Street, Mexborough was where the cottage stood where Robert Glassby, Queen Victoria’s famous sculptor was born. The gable end of the cottage has been preserved and a plaque inserted. The gardens are now enjoyed by the residents.
Bridge Property Management have purchased sacks of food for a community pig rearing project.
The pigs are grazed together but owned by various members of the public who all volunteer their services for the various duties needed.
