SP5203 : The Mathematical Bridge

The Mathematical Bridge
The Mathematical Bridge
This bridge was constructed in 1924 by the Thames Conservancy as part of a general reconstruction of the lock, weirs, and surrounding area. The design was by their Chief Engineer, G. J. Griffiths, M.I.C.E., dated November 1923. It appears to have been a conscious copy, at a reduced scale, of the bridge at Queens' College Cambridge, and the Iffley bridge was even called Newton's Bridge, in perpetuation of the false attribution of the Queens' bridge.
