The Three Bridges
Battersea Bridge , Albert Bridge & Chelsea Bridge
The Three Bridges is what my family say when refering to Battersea , Albert & Chlesea Bridge. These Three Bridges span across the River Thames, Connecting Chealse to Battersea, and sit not ot far from my family home.
Why we call it the Three Bridges: As I have mentioned inprevious posts, my farther is a boxing instructor and used to train his boxers in the nearby Battersea Park. The Three bridges is the name of the running route the boxers , myself and my sisters used to run as a warm up or warm down. This route takes you along the embankment and across each bridge before returning to the starting point.
I remember on hot summer days we would hide in a particular place, basically cheating , waiting for an appropriate amount of time before we would run to the finish and pretend to be tiered hahahah my older sister used to be such a scary cat and spend the entire time hoping we don’t get caught 🙂 thinking back now i bet my farther knew;)
The Three Bridges are made up of , exactly that 3 bridges. the 3 bridges are as follows :
Fun Facts – Opened in July 21, 1890 – built by Joseph Bazalgette- Spans 221m- Bridge Type Arch bridge, Cantilever bridge.
I cross this bridge everyday on my way to work. Even though this bridge is the least adorned of the three, it still remains my favorite of the three.
Albert Bridge –
This bridge is the oldest of the three and appears in many movies, and rightfully so, as it’s in my opinion the nicest looking bridge that spans the river Thames.
