Swing bridge made by the Horseley Iron Co

in Plymouth

Also known as Royal William Yard.

  • Although this site is not actually a museum, it is a remarkable example of a high grade early 19th century industrial establishment. The complex is being sensitively restored, retaining its character while converting the interiors into apartments, offices and restaurants.
  • An 1830s swing bridge and several small cranes built in the 1930s, 1950s and 1960s have been retained.
