Clifton Suspension Bridge was designed in 1830 by Isambard Kingdom Brunel (1806-1859). Its construction began in 1836 but was interrupted in 1843 through lack of funds. It was not until 1864 five years after Brunel’s death that the bridge was completed as a monument to his fame, the chains used being those from the hungerford bridge designed and erected by him in 1843.

Can you see the wonderful catenary between its pillars?s
