Day 192 – Bridge the gap

Clifton Susupension bridge over the Avon Gorge

“Why, man, he doth bestride the narrow world
Like a Colossus”
~  William Shakespeare

This is the beautiful Clifton Suspension Bridge. It spans the Avon gorge and links the city of Bristol to Clifton on the other side. It was opened in 1864 and really is an amazing feat of engineering. The weight of the bridge, including chains, rods, girders and deck is approximately 1,500 tons. It has become an iconic landmark of Bristol and is now very much part of the beautiful view down the Avon gorge.
