Bridge Documentation

This bridge was built as part of a tidal gate system to control water levels, and is noted for its cast iron fascia. The main span superstructure has been replaced, but the original cast iron fascia remains in place. Technically as built the bridge could have qualified as a movable bridge as it had a span that could be lifted if needed to provide passage for boats however it is unclear if it was ever used.
