SU 34 NE ANDOVER Iron Bridge
1840. A footbridge carrying the Ladies Walk above the old main road (from the east)
into the Town, passing through a deep cutting in the chalk. The bridge comprised
3 cast iron cambered beams (each of 2 parts bolted at the centre), the upper and lower
edges being joined by concentric circles. The footway has iron rails at each side, in
a pattern of 17 between 7 thicker uprights, which are crowned with a knob and have a
curved abutment piece. The beams terminate on end plates which rest against brickwork
abutments; one panel has raised lettering ... "Tasker and Fowler 1851". The bridge is
a representative product of a local firm.
