Shadows at Gaol Ferry Bridge


Gaol Ferry Bridge, over the River Avon, Bristol, July 2020

This striking bridge crosses the New Cut, a trench created to take the flow of the Avon River and create Bristol’s Floating Harbour. The steel suspension footbridge was built in 1934 to replace a ferry boat that linked harbour area to residential, and was located close to the city’s New Gaol.
