My colleague Anita & I decided we were well over due for a visit to Tower Bridge & went along the other week. A fellow guide Iain works there, so it was nice to see him as well.
The actual structure is pretty amazing & we realised that each of us on our individual previous visits had omitted to go in to the “Engine Room”, which lies under the arch of the bridge close to the river. This time we went to have a look at the amazing Victorian steam driven technology that operated the hydraulics responsible for lifting the bridge. I thought I’d share some of the pictures I took of this beautiful & impressive engineering.
