Notes
  • Allan Agate writes: "I was the Project Engineer for this footbridge and can therefore confirm it was designed and built by David Rowell Ltd and almost certainly the last suspension bridge they built. It was a hybrid of earlier bridges making use of new bolted hot rolled sections instead of riveted composite tower construction. The date was about 1962/3." I am not sure of the provenance of the 1958 date associated with this bridge and I don't have reason to question Mr. Agate's recollection of the bridge completed a few years later.
