Marlow Suspension Bridge

This is Marlow Bridge across the River Thames separating Buckinghamshire from Berkshire.  I was fortunate to be able to shoot this close up from the second floor balcony of the brand new Marlow Rowing Club.  All Saints Church can be seen in the background.

The bridge was designed and built by William Tierney Clark and opened in 1832.  William Clark also designed the Széchenyi Chain Bridge across the River Danube in Budapest and is a larger scale version of the Marlow bridge.
