Bridge Over Rotherhithe New Road
Bridge Over Rotherhithe New Road
This disused railway bridge carried the Bricklayers Arms branch of the South Eastern Railway across the road. Bricklayers Arms was one of the largest engine shed and goods yard facilities in London, covering 26 acres of land. The line was constructed in 1833-34 and remained in use until 1981 when the goods yards finally closed. The bridge remains in place but the extensive yards and shed areas have been redeveloped into housing estates. On the right, the station sign for South Bermondsey indicates footpath access to the station.

Subsequent to this photograph,in January 2013 this old railway bridge was replaced by a new shared use (cycle and pedestrian) bridge giving easy access to the station from a nearby housing estate. Stephen Craven's TQ3478 : Bermondsey Connect2 bridge - west side shows the new bridge.
