Bridge mechanism, Greenland Dock Cut, Redriff Road
The cut that this hydraulically operated swing bridge crossed has completely disappeared. Indeed, practically the entire Surrey Dock complex has gone. This bridge is of about 1890 vintage. The chains pass to a pair of hydraulic cylinders (one to open and one to close). This is quite overgrown and our guide for the day said that he had walked past it about ten times before noticing it.
