Listing Text

(East Side)
Marlow Bridge
SU 8586 1/60 16.7.49.

1831-36. Suspension bridge by William Tierney Clark. Clark was a pupil
of Telford and assistant to Rennie. He designed bridges also at
Hammersmith and Budapest both of which are now destroyed. The chairs
are carried by pair of stone Doric triumphal arches on rusticated piers.
The rails to footways have contemporary "Palm Tree" heads.

The whole bridge was very substantially restored in 1956-7 so that much
of the ironwork and chains are now new. The appearance of the bridge
however remains unchanged.
