River Thames: Support columns of the old Blackfriars Railway Bridge
River Thames: Support columns of the old Blackfriars Railway Bridge
These are the remaining support columns of the original Blackfriars Railway Bridge which was built in 1864 to the designs of Joseph Cubitt for the London, Chatham and Dover Railway. It connected Blackfriars station on the south side of the river and Ludgate Hill station on the north. The bridge was later augmented by the current bridge, which is in the background and built in 1886. Eventually the weight of modern trains caused the abandonment of the first bridge, the tracks were lifted and the overhead decking structure was eventually removed in 1985.
