The Middlesbrough Transporter Bridge; designed by the ‘Cleveland Bridge and Engineering Co’, opened in October 1911 and carefully dismantled piece by piece in 2002 by ‘BridgeNorth Demolition’.
Now firmly rooted in Auf Wiedersehen, Pet folklore, the bridge stands proud in Arizona transporting Native Americans across ‘Crow River’ to their now thriving Casino. Or so the story goes*.
To commemorate 17 years since the first airing of this award-winning BBC comedy drama, we’ve created this soft rubber keyring which is made to last a lifetime, just like the Transporter Bridge!
Buy now for immediate dispatch.
Why not relive the magic of the scene here when Neville Hope (Kevin Whately) has that light-bulb moment and ‘BridgeNorth’ was born?
A minimum of 10% of proceeds from all sales goes to the Sunday For Sammy Trust based in the North East of England. Charity Number: 1144531
