The City of London is the sole trustee of Bridge House Estates. Bridge House Estates in some cases built, and now maintains, five of the bridges that cross the Thames into the City of London:
- London Bridge
- Blackfriars Bridge
- Southwark Bridge
- Tower Bridge
- Millennium Footbridge
The maintenance and replacement of these bridges remains the prime objective of the charity.
City Bridge Trust is the grant-making arm of Bridge House Estates. It was established to make use of funds surplus to bridge requirements and provides grants totalling around £15m per year towards charitable activity benefitting Greater London.
Copies of Bridge House Estates annual reports and financial statements for earlier years can be downloaded from the Trust's website.
Copies of the Pension Fund annual reports from earlier years are available on request from CHBemail@example.com
