>>> Movable Bridges in the British Isles

Jason King at the Bristol Fashion: life afloat blog points us to this neat site… something I hadn’t considered is all of the various bridge designs in the British canal system.

If it’s a swing bridge, lift bridge, drawbridge, bascule bridge, sliding bridge, retractable bridge, curling bridge, rolling bridge, telescopic bridge, transporter bridge, counterweight bridge, boat lift or any other sort of movable bridge and is in the British Isles it belongs on this website, whether it is on a canal or river, in a dock or marina, or over the moat of a castle or fort. In time we intend to create a comprehensive historical and photographic record of movable bridges in the British Isles, with the help of supporters and contributors.
