Poole Street Bridge – National Trust Property
Help the National Trust protect our heritage by undertaking a regular volunteer commitment!
The National Trust works to preserve and promote Australia’s indigenous, environmental, and built heritage and culture.
A huge number of positions are available across the state varying from front of house, food service and clerical roles to guiding, research, promotions and fundraising.
Volunteering at the National Trust is a fantastic way to meet new people, develop new skills and contribute to the history of your local community.
About this site: The Goldfields Water Supply Scheme was originally laid under the Avon River in Northam. Bad flooding in 1917 caused the pipe to fail and a new solution was conceived – a timber trestle bridge that carried the pipeline over the water. The pipe now crosses the river on two new bridges. Poole Street Bridge is one of 25 sites on the Golden Pipeline Heritage Trail.
