EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the timeless beauty of the Suspension Bridge, a remarkable footbridge that spans over the majestic River Great Ouse in Bedford. Dating back to 1888, this architectural masterpiece was meticulously designed by John Webster and features intricate ironwork crafted by E Page and Co of Bedford. With its impressive 100 ft (30 metre) span, this iron bow string lattice girder bridge stands as a testament to engineering brilliance. The deck, made of concrete laid on Westwood and Baileys corrugated iron plates, adds a modern touch to its historical charm. Nestled within a picturesque parkland setting, this iconic bridge is surrounded by lush greenery and towering trees that provide a serene backdrop for those who traverse it. Its graceful suspension design creates an ethereal atmosphere as it seemingly floats above the tranquil waters below. Listed as an important heritage site (IoE 350232), this footbridge not only serves as a practical means of crossing but also symbolizes the rich history and cultural significance of Bedfordshire. It invites visitors to step into the past while enjoying the natural beauty that surrounds them. Through Clive Jones' lens, we are transported back in time to appreciate both the artistry and functionality of this stunning structure. This print is not just an image; it encapsulates a piece of history frozen in time - an enduring testament to human ingenuity and our connection with nature's wonders.
