The Blackfriars Bridge, wrought-iron bridge, was originally constructed in 1875, but has been updated in 2018. It spans the North Branch of the Thames River, on Blackfriars Street, in London, Ontario. A beautiful piece of heritage to visit, while on a walk along the river.

Old, old bridge I used to play around it with friends back in the day. This bridge is being refurbished. It has been lifted and will be placed back when the work is done. One of the oldest bridges in London over the Thames River.

This is one of the oldest steel construction bridges in Ontario. It has been the subject of very heated debates of whether to replace or repair. As of Nov 2017 it has been dismantled for repairs. It will not be rebuilt until late 2018

Walked on this bridge and played around it when I was a kid. Only one car could get through at a time. Now they are refurbishing it and trying to conserve most.

Bridge has recently been renovated and is a cute little bridge but not a place your going to spend much time at unless your interested in the architecture of it. It is treasured in the community and frequently used. It makes for some nice photographs...More
