Swing Bridge

This is the Wilmington bridge originally built to carry the railway across the river but now it's just for pedestrians and cyclists, oh and photographers. It was opened in 1907 and the last train crossed in 1968. It still works as a swing bridge to allow river traffic to pass though I have to admit I've never seen it in action as it were.


  1. Ooh yes. A photographer's delight.

  2. I saw it open for the first time recently & it is amazing how 'open' the river appears. Great photo.
