Blackfriars Railway Bridge

Category: Bridges

Blackfriars Railway Bridge is a railway bridge crossing the River Thames in London, between Blackfriars Bridge and the Millennium Bridge.

There have been two structures with the name, although not at the same time. The first bridge was opened in 1864 and was designed by Joseph Cubitt for the London, Chatham and Dover Railway. Massive abutments at each end carried the railway’s insignia, preserved and splendidly restored on the south side. It was too weak to support modern trains and all that remains are a series of columns crossing the Thames.
