1845 The rebuilding of the Stockwell-street bridge (or the Victoria Bridge, as it became known) was rendered imperative by the disrepair of the old structure. Accordingdly a Bill was introduced into Parliament to obtain the necessary powers, and to move the weir at this site further upstream, to a site about 140 yards above the Hutchesontown Bridge, which spanned the Clyde at the foot of the Saltmarket. The Hutchesontown Bridge was demolished in 1879
