NOTES: This bridge was designed by Thomas Farnolls Pritchard in 1775 and executed by Abraham Darby III in Coalbrookedale in 1777-1779. It was the first arch bridge of completely iron construction in the world.
NOTES: Pelli's tower, One Canada Square, is the centrepiece of the Canary Wharf development. The architects of the curved 20 Cabot Square were Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates. Heron Quays, in the foreground and not part of Canary Wharf, was by Nicholas Lacey Jobst & Partners.
NOTES; The bridge was built to ferry people and horses across the Usk to the Orb Steelworks on the East side and still allow high sail ships to pass under it. The span of this bridge is example of the rare transporter bridge concept of which only another eight exist in the world. The bridge is Grade I listed.
