St Philip's Bridge

10. Tramways at St Philip’s Bridge

St Philip’s Bridge was built in 1841, replacing a ferry across the water. It stopped being a toll paying bridge in 1875. It was directly hit by bombing which severed the power cables of the tramways which ran across it. This signalled the end of the tramway system in Bristol, as services did not resume after the war.
