Lendal Bridge :: Shared Description

Lendal Bridge stands on the site of a former rope-ferry where the city walls break for the River Ouse.
The bridge connects two medieval towers: Lendal Tower on the east bank and Barker Tower on the west bank. It was designed by civil engineer Thomas Page, who also designed London's Westminster Bridge. It is made of cast iron, and has a single span of 175 feet.
The bridge opened in 1863. Together with the attached tollhouses it is a Grade II listed building. LinkExternal link
Lendal Bridge links Station Road with Museum Street and thus York railway station with York Minster, and is part of York's Inner Ring Road.
