Wow one of my Engineering Hero's! I had no idea he built this bridge. Thank you Merc.

P.S. Should that not be down river to Burham?

When the Medieval bridge at Maidstone was demolished the stone was removed in lighters, up the river to Burham, where it was used in the construction of cottages. The new bridge at the Broadway was designed by the Victorian engineer, Sir Joseph Bazalgette, and opened in August 1879. The bridge was widened between 1926 and 1936.
