I just love walking across this beautiful bridge. Excellent views of the Medway on both sides. Take time to enjoy the construction and the decorations.

Travelling over this beautiful iron bridge full of intricate detail,always well maintained, it had a 50 foot swing section on the Strood side when building was completed in 1856 to allow the large sailing ships access to the Medway, only the third crossing built here over a period of 2000 yrs with the Roman bridge lasting some 1300 of those...

It is a nice iron Victorian bridge built in a place where a roman timber bridge served people for about 1300 years ! How a timber bridge could last 1300 years and only be destroyed by a storm ? Amazing !!!

The bridge is used by pedestrians cars and trains usually but not on Christmas Dickens weekend ! Network rail once again chose to annoy people trying to get to Rochester on the first weekend in December once again. Engineering works!! Rochester bridge served us well as we travelled to Ebbsfleet on the High speed, then doubled back to Strood to... More

The bridge is not wide enough for all the traffic really neither are the roads around it. The bridge itself looks lovely and is safe.

I didn't no that there is three bridges at this point crossing the river. Two for cars and walkers ,and one for trains. You get a lovely view of Rochester Castle from the bridge. All so you can see an old submarine that's docked in the river.

This is just a bridge connecting Rochester and Strood by crossing the Medway river. At either end there are lion statues and on the Strood side there are stairs down to the riverside below for people on food. I guess the architecture of the bridge is interesting if you are into such things, and it does give quite a nice... More

I realise that a bridge is just a bridge but some are much more interesting than others and this is one of the much more interesting ones. It is lovely viewed from the side but you see much more of the detail whilst travelling over it (unless you're the driver). It is a lovely bridge taking you into a lovely... More

This bridge has a lot of pokéstops on it. Outside of the virtual world it's an ok bridge, you can photograph the castle, look at a rusting Russian sub, or feel the harsh wind coming from inland on your face as you take in the sight and sound of the M2 motorway bridge in the distance. If you are into... More
