St Katharine Docks - Telford footbridge
St Katharine Docks - Telford footbridge
This bridge span and the one on the opposite bank are known as the Telford footbridge and originally spanned the entrance to the East Dock. A drawing of the bridge from 1829 is signed by Thomas Rhodes, who was Thomas Telford's resident engineer at the docks from 1828. On 27th October 1829 the company accepted a tender for the bridge from John Lloyd, a millwright from Westminster. The tender price was 447. The two halves of the bridge retracted into recesses in the masonry to allow ships to pass. The bridge remained at the dock entrance until 1994 and is now preserved here as a rare survivor.
