An impressive cast iron bridge spanning the Medway. Whilst there are more than one bridge in this location it is the early 1900's cast iron one that stands out. Brilliant bit of engineering.

LOOKING BOTH DOWN AND UP-RIVER there is plenty of activity on the Medway, always an important river, serving London. Good views of the attractive riverside gardens, too - and of course, Rochester Castle. The road to Upnor Castle and other attractions.

It is an impressive bridge that rather dominates Rochester, cars on one side and trains on the other. It does nevertheless have an attractiveness about it.

Best viewed from the bank of the river Medway as there is a lot of traffic using the bridge. Look out for the lions. A great place for bridge enthusiasts but otherwise just a method of crossing the river

Its a very busy bridge but I love it. The lions are very cheeky and worth looking at. It is a lovely venue with good views towards the castle. Great place for photos.

Is a bridge that crosses the River Medway. Stood to Rochester. Views from the bridge are good, notably the castle. The bridge is a good look in one. Metal.
