Gaol Bridge

Gaol Bridge

Gaol Bridge spans the Lee near the north-western entrance to UCC. Designed by Marc Isambard Brunel, the bridge was built in 1835 to provide access to the county gaol from the newly-built Western Road. His son, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, used lessons learnt on this bridge to aid his design of the flat-arched Maidenhead Bridge on the London to Bristol railway line.
