Ford's Foundry 15 January 2012 (9)
On the right the 1990s extension comes hard up against Prince's Drive. From the other side it looks as though the building is being gutted before it is pulled down. The footbridge was constructed, I believe, to connect Ford's employees' car park, off to the left and derelict, with the works; it remains a vital crossing for pedestrians and cyclists. The road is shown as Prince's Drive on OS maps only from 1939; before that it was River Walk Lane: another story. The river crossing of Prince's Drive by Prince's Bridge dates from 1923 SP3065 : Plaque on Prince's Bridge.
