The main bridge into and out of Tenbury closed to traffic at 10am on Monday 9th January, 2012, the time having been prearranged to reduce inconvenience. As seen in the photo, the BBC were there to film the moment, for broadcast that evening on Midlands Today. Central News came a couple of days later, providing more publicity for the closure. The last time Teme Bridge closed for an
extended period was in 1908, when it was widened to cope with Edwardian traffic levels. At that time the old ford was reopened, providing an alternative route for various purposes, such as livestock travelling between the railway station and Tenbury's busy market. Back in 1908, Worcestershire County Council bought Eastham Bridge. Built in the 1790s,

this had been a privately-owned toll bridge for over 100 years, but the County Council took it over and abolished the toll, providing an additional publicly-owned crossing. Teme Bridge links Tenbury to the A456 trunk
road in Burford so it's not only a key route into the town, it's also used by traffic making through journeys such as Clee Hill to Bromyard and Leysters to Cleobury Mortimer. It has been closed for strengthening works, so 44 tonne trucks will be able to travel through Tenbury for years to come. A £50,000 fund to safeguard the town's
economic vitality has been put in place by Worcestershire County Council and Malvern Hills District Council, featuring initiatives such as a shoppers' £1000 monthly draw. See inside for more details!
