Chislehurst Road bridge works painted by St Paul's Cray artist
CHISLEHURST Road bridge rebuilding work has its’ place in art history thanks to an artist’s efforts.
While work has been going on to replace the damaged 1958 structure with a new one Pamela Park has made several visits to the site to capture the action.
The 66-year-old, of Chequers Close, St Paul’s Cray, usually paints wildlife and other natural scenes but thought it was important to document this piece of history.
She said: “It’s good the works will still be remembered through the paintings.
“I did not think that the crane would be moving on a Sunday but it was so I had to be quick.
“I paint animals, birds, buildings – anything that takes my interest.”
The old bridge, across the four line railway between Chislehurst and St Mary Cray stations, was closed on November 7 last year. It is expected to reopen on November 16.
