⚒ Reconstruction of the bridge between the Upper Donjon Gate and the Upper Bastion begins!
⚒ Its construction will consist of more than 100 m3 of wood. Length of the crossing – 25 m, height – 12,5 and width – 4,4 m – keep your fingers crossed for the wood delivery!
⚒ In order to move forward with the bridge and gain access to other parts of the Fortress, climbers will first remove loose elements of the walls; the walls will be covered with protective nets for the duration of the work. Masonry work will continue on both bridge abutments. Hundreds of tons of stone to be re-built are also a great challenge. The reconstruction of the bridge was based on Grzegorz Podruczny’s historical research, including the most faithful source – the inventory of the fortress made by Captain and Plaza Major Bornsteadt in 1776-77, after the completion of the fortress’ main defensive works.
⚒ The works will, of course, be viewable from the crown of the Donjon… helped by the annual ticket we’re introducing from April 1 😉
