Description

Barnes Bridge is only one of three bridges in London which combines as both a railway and a pedestrian bridge.
The original bridge was built in 1849 by the celebrated engineer Joseph Locke and was replaced in 1895 by the London and South Western Railway.
Although not a thing of great beauty, Barnes Bridge is definitely a landmark (not least as a way point on the University Boat Race) and received Grade II listed status from English Heritage in 1983.
