Official Opening Celebration at Bennerley Viaduct:

At 12pm, Lord Lieutenants of both Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire will cut the ribbon to mark the first year of “the Iron Giant” being open to the public since its restoration

The Friends of Bennerley Viaduct are also offering free guided tours at 11am and 2pm – visitors should sign up on the day
