In December 2012, we were awarded a grant of £595,000  by the Heritage Lottery Fund to help us create a brand new Heritage and Learning Centre on the Leigh Woods side of the Clifton Suspension Bridge, employ a Community, Learning and Volunteer Officer, and develop a range of formal and informal learning opportunities for visitors to the bridge. In this section, you'll find some information in this section which you may find useful when planning your visit to the bridge or researching it in the classroom.
