Artist's Description

An Historic Scotland Category A Listed Structure

Looking over the rooftops of South Queensferry to the world famous Forth Bridge from the south end of the Forth Road Bridge.

The Forth Bridge is one of the most photographed bridges in the World (probably the most photographed bridge in Europe).

This unique steel Cantilever Railway Bridge with three diamond-shaped towers crosses the River Forth from South to North Queensferry in East Central Scotland.

The Forth Bridge is an Historic Scotland Category A Listed structure. HB Number 40370.

Construction started in 1883. The bridge was opened in 1890 at a cost of £2.5m (~£205m in today’s prices) and 57 fatalities among the construction crew (it is now believed that the actual death toll is likely to have been closer to 80).

The bridge is still in use today, carrying the railways to the north from Edinburgh. Along with the Forth Road Bridge these two bridges form the main traffic arteries north and south.
