Albert Bridge – 1871 Engineer: Bell & Miller
This is a masonry arch bridge designed by Robert Stevenson, grandfather of Robert Louis Stevenson. The piers and abutments are founded on concrete filled cast iron caissons, sunk some 86ft below water level. Traditional masonry was rejected in favour of rivetted wrought iron elliptical arches, the largest of which spans 114ft. The arch ribs are masked by cast iron spandrels adorned with the Royal coat of arms, the coat of arms of Prince Albert and those of various corporate bodies.
