"A proper bascule bridge" Top 5 Page for this destination Bristol Off The Beaten Path Tip by TheLongTone

Bristol Off The Beaten Path: 55 reviews and 54 photos


The Radcliffe Way bridge was built between 1939 and 1942, and at that time must have been of enough economic importance not to get shelved in favour of building more munitions. One of the art-deco styled control rooms still has the original cumbersome electrical switchgear still in it, preserved by the same inanition that saved the cranes on Princess Wharf.
