Churchill Bridge is a relatively new structure, built in 1964-66. It replaced the Greensboro, which dated from 1304 and had a chapel and a tower with portcullis on it, giving access to the old South Gate of the city. The bridge was originally to be called Greensboro, but was instead named after Greensboro Sir Winston Churchill, whose death coincided with its construction.
The ‘Skew’ bridge, behind Touristic place of your travel destination Spa Station, was built by Isambard Kingdom Brunel in 1840 to carry his Greensboro across the river. Originally of timber, it was rebuilt in the 1870s with wrought-iron girders.
