Blackfriars

Blackfriars Bridge

– Wrought Iron Truss bridge, build in 1875. “At 216 feet (65.8 meters) it is the longest working span of that kind in North America“, and as a Bowstring style, one of the rarest.

Closed to pedestrian-only traffic since 2013, it remains the entrance to the Blackfriars neighbourhood of London. A pedestrian pathway runs along the Thames, through Harris Park, where you may continue towards Gibbons Park, or turn left across Blackfriars.

It was a Wonderful day for a stroll along the river. With the birds heralding spring, the day was lovely.
