Jesus Lock / The Foot Bridge

History of Jesus Lock

Jesus Lock and the Footbridge

The photo above seems to be an earlier version of the bridge. A new bridge was built in 1892 which was presumably the one still used at the beginning of the 21st century.

The bridge shown in the cartoon below appears to be the same and the second version of the bridge still used in the 21st century..
