Full Description

Extract from the Derbyshire Times, 13 Aug 1887: "Abutments of sandstone ashlar, spaced at a distance of 77 feet between faces. Dressed bed stones are provided to receive the iron girders, the ends of which are enclosed in four dressed stone pilasters. The bridge is formed of a pair of wrought iron girders of the braced bow-string type, the span between centres of bearings being 80 feet. The arched ribs are composed of a pair of rolled channel irons. The floor of the bridge is carried on solid rolled wrought iron transverse joists of the deck-beam type, to which are secured pitch pine planks. On each side of the bracing girder are the words 'Jubilee Bridge, 1887'. The design for the bridge is by Thomas Gillott, Engineer to the Butterley Company, and the whole of the ironwork has been manufactured at the Butterley Iron works and erected by them." (1)
