Description

The Royal Albert Bridge was built by Sir Isambard Kingdom Brunel (1806-1859) and was his last and perhaps greatest masterpiece. It was built to span the River Tamar at Saltash to link Devon and Cornwall. It was built of wrought-iron with two spans of 455 feet and 17 short spans. Brunel also planned the Clifton suspension bridge (1864) and the Hungerford suspension bridge (1841-1845).
