Not really much to look at, but very iconic.....drive along the bottom deck and you can see the steelwork and every rivet put in by hand. Started in 1920's, opened in 1933, top deck accommodated road traffic, mainly horse and cart, and a few motor...More

This bridge, full of metal, is somekind of icon in Londonderry, being it's oldest bridge between two parts of City. Style comes from old times, but very much used when people are visiting both sides of old town. The most interesting point is it's construction...More

It's a bridge. As bridges go, it's about as good a bridge as any other. Preferable to the Foyle Bridge. It is centrally located bringing you into Derry City Centre.
