Great Yarmouth Bridges
There are 3 bridges in Great Yarmouth - the Haven Bridge, the Breydon Bridge and the old railway bridge.
The Haven Bridge
The Haven Bridge carries traffic from the South of the borough into the town centre. In the background of this view from South Quay is Great Yarmouth's only 'tower block' - the imaginatively named Haven Bridge House, an unedifying building which consists of offices.
Views from The Haven Bridge in 2002 with the Town Hall and the Grand Turk tallship, once a regular port visitor.
The Breydon Bridge
The Breydon Bridge is a modern single bascule bridge that carries through traffic from the A12 onto the adjoining A47
The Old Railway Bridge
This old bridge once took the railway into the town stations but the stations have gone and the bridge has long fallen into disrepair. It sits between the railway station and The Conge. It would cost a fortune to restore, and a similar fortune to demolish. There are intermittent 'save the bridge' campaigns (and feasibility studies that tend to recommend further feasibility studies!) but it just sits there gracefully rusting away.
