British Waterways are currently working on improving the way bridge 211 operated by installing an automated push button system. From July 2010 you will require a BWB watermate key to operate this bridge. There will be keys available to purchase from Annie's Tea Roomat Thrupp, however this will only be during normal opening hours. Instructions on how to operate the bridge willbe on the operating pedestals at the bridge.
If you check your maps it is bridge 221 not 211. Would I buy a used car from these people? NAH!!!!!!!
We here at Thrupp are at a loss to find anyone who wants to have this bridge desecrated except of course BW who seemingly have little respect for the waterways they are charged with looking after.
