Barry Docks Basin Sliding Bridge

Barry Docks Basin Sliding Bridge
The sliding swing bridge bridge, built by the Darlington Carriage and Wagon Works, spanned the channel between No.1 dock and No.3 Dock, just above the lock. It was hydraulically operated and the pump house is listed Grade II as are both the bridge and the adjacent signal box. It does not appear that anyone cares about the structures in this view, dating from 1889, and they are steadily disintegrating through neglect.

The signal box existed to operate and protect the bridge. The single internal dock line and roadway it carried connected South Side Sidings with the Graving Dock and No.2 Dock lines.

Allowed to decay - a too common story.

Much interest and a lot going on, most of it rather sad.
Fine shot, anyway!
