The Battersea Railway Bridge – properly called the Cremorne Bridge, after the pleasure grounds in Chelsea and originally commonly referred to as the Battersea New Bridge – is an east-west bridge across the River Thames in London, between Battersea and Chelsea and forming part of the West London Line from Clapham Junction to Willesden Junction. The bridge was designed by William Baker, chief engineer of the London and North Western Railway, and was opened in March 1863 at a cost of ?87,000. It carries two sets of railway lines and consists of five 120ft. lattice girder arches set on stone piers.
