Blackfriars Railway Bridge :: Shared Description

There have been two structures with the name. The first bridge was opened in 1864 and was designed by Joseph Cubitt for the London, Chatham and Dover Railway. Massive abutments at each end carried the railway's insignia, preserved and restored on the south side. It eventually became too weak to support modern trains, and was removed in 1985 - all that remains is a series of columns crossing the Thames and the southern abutment, which is a Grade II listed structure LinkExternal link . The remaining bridge, built slightly further downstream (to the east), was originally called St Paul's Railway Bridge and opened in 1886. It was designed by John Wolfe-Barry and Henry Marc Brunel and is made of wrought iron.
