London, United Kingdom 2019 XII

My last day in London involved walking to Hammersmith Bridge and then alongside the Thames River to Albert Bridge and return. Quite a walk I can tell you!

Battersea Bridge, River Thames, Battersea

In 1879 the original and dangerous wooden bridge was taken into public ownership, and in 1885 demolished and replaced with the existing bridge, designed by Sir Joseph Bazalgette the man responsible for the revolutionary London Sewer system. . It is the narrowest surviving road bridge over the Thames in London, it is one of London’s least busy Thames bridges. The location on a bend in the river makes the bridge a hazard to shipping, and it has been closed many times due to collisions.

Albert Bridge, River Thames, Battersea

This Grade II Listed bridge crosses over the Tideway of the River Thames connecting Chelsea in Central London on the north, left bank to Battersea on the south. It was built as a toll bridge and operated as such for 6 years.

The toll booths are the only surviving booths in London today.
