Heritage heroes

LEE Pullen, pictured, and his 13 fellow volunteers tour guides at the Clifton Suspension Bridge have won an award.

    The hard-hatted guides, who take visitors on an hour-long tour of the vaults on the Leigh Woods side of the Clifton Suspension Bridge, have researched and created props to bring the story of Brunel and his bridge to life. 

Their enthusiasm and dedication led to visitor numbers at the bridge doubling last year. 

     They have won a Heritage Heroes award, from the Heritage Alliance, sponsored by specialist insurer The Ecclesiastical.
