TQ3180 : Blackfriars Railway Bridge

taken 3 years ago, near to City of London, Great Britain

Blackfriars Railway Bridge
Blackfriars Railway Bridge
The original railway bridge in this location was built in 1864. The red column shown here is one of its pillars, all of which are still in place. The bridge itself has been removed in 1985. Next to it is the second Blackfriars railway bridge, which was built only two years after the first one. During the Thameslink upgrade in 2007, the platforms of Blackfriars station were extended across the length of the bridge, and the platform canopies can be seen here. There are several slack wires fixed to the bridge pillars at different heights above the waterline, perhaps to aid people who have fallen in the river.
