More Info →First Fitzherbert Bridge

Looking south-west from the top of the Terrace on the Fitzherbert side of the Manawatu River. Note the presence of the Sports Ground, which was laid out by the Manawatu Sports Association between 1895 and 1900 and sold to the Borough Council in the latter year. Note the absence of the native bush close to the bridge which appears in 2007n_br3_brw_0552. This first bridge across the Manawatu River was built in 1877, the second Fitzherbert Bridge, built by Fletcher Construction Co. Ltd, was opened 20 July 1935, and a third bridge, still in use in 2015, was built in 1987.
