IK Brunel’s Royal Albert Bridge, Saltash

Some images from Sunday 7th December 2014, taken at the Royal Albert Bridge in Saltash, Cornwall of Mr I K Brunel’s wonderful train bridge from 1859 which carries the railway over the River Tamar into Cornwall.

The other bridge is the road bridge or Tamar Bridge which was opened in 1962 and is 335 metres (1,099 ft) long and carries traffic in and out of Cornwall to Devon.

Road users are robbed of £1.50 each time they exit Cornwall!

The pub in the photos with the Union Jack on it is the Union Pub and is located underneath the bridge by the quayside.
