River Thames & Cookham Bridge
River Thames & Cookham Bridge
Built in 1867 by Messrs. Pease Hutchinson at their Skerne Iron Works in Darlington, the bridge replaced a short-lived wooden bridge which in turn had replaced the river ferry here. There is a comprehensive history of the bridge here LinkExternal link which includes some old pictures and photos, including some of the original engineering design drawings of the supporting columns. Interestingly Brunel's submitted design for the bridge was rejected. Up until the 1950s it was a toll bridge, and the toll house can be seen at the far left of the picture.
