7/106 Swing Bridge over
Naas Harbour opposite
corner of Naas Lane
- II
Swing-bridge and abutments. Early C19. Pair of laminated timber beams carrying
heavy cross-plank deck, 2 round bar balustrade on steel T-section uprights,
some reinforced, and hung to steel rope suspension cable carried over two cast-iron
posts with decorative tops and all set to cross beam on horizontal revolving
wheel and apparatus; at harbour end a push-bar, stopped to very heavy steel-capped
short post c450mm square, and with a single railway buffer stop at low level.
Total length of bridge c13m and width 2.2m. Projecting curved abutments, including
steps down on swinging-end all in sandstone coursed walling with very heavy
block rounded nosings. Receiving block with cast iron hook for securing bridge
in open position. The bridge is a very good example of the direct and sturdy
quality encountered in the functional tradition of quay-side design.
