Haw Bridge over the River Severn
Haw Bridge over the River Severn
Haw Bridge was completed in September 1961, this replaced an earlier bridge of notoriety. In January 1938, the bridge made national headlines when it was at the centre of the 'Torso Murder', a human torso and limbs were dredged up from the riverbed, however, the head was never found and the crime never solved. This earlier bridge was badly damaged in December 1958, when a barge hit it. The damaged bridge was replaced with the present structure.
