Albert Bridge

I walked back over Albert Bridge, an amazing piece of Victorian engineering, connecting the residential parts of Battersea to Chelsea.   It was originally designed by Rowland Mason Ordish in 1873 and was then reinforced a decade later by Joseph Bazalgette.   Soldiers must break step as they cross it:-

One thought on “Albert Bridge

  1. Mark Fisher says:

    Albert Bridge is, in my view, one of the best two or three bridges in London – only Waterloo, with its great views down to St Paul’s, is better. And it, Albert Bridge, is at its best at night when it is wonderfully lit.
