Description

GP109 The City of Bristol from Dundry Hill showing the two Severn Bridges and the Clifton Suspension Bridge. Only 12 shots . Taken on my Canon 40D. My smallest Gigapan so far.

It was designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel and completed after his death in 1864. He won a competition to design a bridge here, but because the powers that be didn't believe that such a span could be built, he had to build a brick abutment on the Leigh Woods side to reduce the span. The chains used were second hand having been used on the original Hungerford bridge over the Thames in London.

See: share.gigapan.org/viewGigapan.php?id=27492 for a distant view from Dundry hill.
