The regeneration of the Worcester Bridge, using Woburn Rumbled block paving and Natural Granite kerb.



Worcester Bridge is a crossing of the River Severn in the city of Worcester, constructed in 1781. The bridge is the only road crossing within the city centre. This is one of Worcester's most important historic structures and the specification will be in accordance with the rest of the bridge.


Aggregate Industries' Charcon range of Woburn Rumbled concrete block paving was an ideal option for this type of project due to its traditional character and visual appeal. Woburn Rumbled has an attractive timeworn and weathered appearance, reminiscent of natural sandstone setts and is therefore a cobble paving suited to a wide range of environments, including heritage sites. The number of colour mixes and subtle shade differences between adjacent blocks, alongside the wide range of size options can also help with the requirement to maintain a traditional finish. 

Laid alongside the Woburn Rumbled was the Charcon Natural Granite kerb in pink shade. These kerbs work well with any of the Charcon hard landscaping products. Being hard wearing, durable and with natural anti-skid performance, this kerb is ideal for the bridge setting.
