Clifton Suspension Bridge

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In 2008 I visited the Clifton Suspension Bridge that spans the picturesque Avon Gorge. It is the symbol of the city of Bristol in the UK. 

Its story began in 1754 with the dream of a Bristol merchant who left a legacy to build a bridge over the Gorge. A 24-year-old Isambard Kingdom Brunel was appointed engineer.

 I found it hard to believe that it was around 150 years old. It looked like new – bright and shiny and beautifully built. If you click on the photo below it will be easier to read the text.

 

About the bridge

 I think it is among the most amazing “man-made” wonders in the world.
