River Trent, Andresey Bridge
River Trent, Andresey Bridge
The Andresey Bridge is a Grade II-listed (List entry Number: 1288956 LinkExternal link Historic England), elegant, single-span iron footbridge with latticed arched sides supporting the walkway. It was made in 1884 and leads across the river to Andresey Island, one of several islands formed by the River Trent which divides into several streams at this point.
River Trent
The River Trent is the third longest river in England (185 miles). It rises on Biddolph Moor, Staffordshire, then follows a generally north east to northerly path to join the River Ouse at Trent Falls. The Ouse & Trent combined form the Humber Estuary.
It is a very important river, economically having a number of Power Stations and industrial sites along its banks. It is navigable as far as Burton-On-Trent.
