The Grand Bridge

The Grand Bridge with arcaded superstructure and drumhead finials as planned by Vanbrugh was never completed and today, only an elevation plan survives. Bartholomew Peisley, the mason who built the bridge, under Vanbrugh’s direction, was ‘very proud and overjoyed’, when in 1710 the main arch, 101 feet (almost 31 metres) wide, was keyed.

Not sure what I think of this edit of the original picture yet…I think it needs more work (not necessarily to this image, but amybe starting from scratch again). However, I’ve not come up with anything better as yet!
