Twelvetrees Crescent Bridge
in London, E3
Built in 1872 for the Imperial Gas Light and Coke Co for access to their Gas Works.
Engineer: Peter William Barlow.
Two arches span the River Lea and Bow Creek, which run alongside each other here. Seven wrought-iron ribs. Wrought iron plates are riveted to the flanks of the bridge, giving it a fairly modern appearance from a distance. However cast iron balustrades and gas lamp standards indicate its Victorian heritage, welcome old artefacts surviving amidst modern blandness.
