Bideford Long Bridge

The Bideford Bridge Trust

Bideford Bridge

The Bideford Bridge Trust grew from the group of people who built and managed the various bridges that crossed the Torridge between Bideford and East-the-Water in North Devon, England.

The bridge has a long and colourful history. You can read a summary of it here.

The income and investments over the years - managed by the Trustees - allow the Trust to provide grants to local individuals and organisations for various purposes.

The Trust also owns, builds and maintains commercial and residential properties in Bideford - it rents these to local people and businesses.

You can see the type of things for which the Bideford Bridge Trust provides grants here.
