From Roman times there has been a river crossing at this point. It has an interesting history of development following the increasing need for people to travel.

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.

Started using this route a lot now. A really great looking bridge as you enter the historic town crossing the medway.

As bridges go, this one is attractive, as the people that run it are very caring and conscientious. The upkeep is good, and the flowers that decorate the area are provided by the Bridge Trust who also maintain it. You can take in lovely views...More
