Brunel BridgeThe Brunel or Royal Albert Bridge bridge spans the River Tamar between Plymouth, on the Devon bank and Saltash on the Cornish bank carrying the main railway route in and out of Cornwall.
Designed by the great British engineer, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, as two great 455-ft spans, the difficulty of its construction rates it as one of Brunel's greatest railway achievements. Opened by Prince Albert in 1859, it was completed the year of the great engineer's death.
