Historic England have amended the list description for Waterloo Bridge to take in to account research by ProBE Co-Director Christine Wall into the history of its construction during the Second World War.

The bridge, known to many Londoners as the ‘Ladies’ Bridge’, was built by contractor Peter Lind and Christine’s research, including an interview with the contractor’s daughter Betty Lind, has verified the story that women worked on the bridge during the war.

Historic England's full report can be found here.

The news item was released on National Women in Engineering Day, Wednesday 23 June 2015 and was circulated widely in the press both online and in news items including BBC London Radio, BBC London, and London Live and the BBC website where you can still find it.
