Sutton Bridge with new bridge under construction


Here is an interesting old photo of Sutton Bridge. Taken when the New Swing Bridge was under construction, in its finishing stage. 1897.
Lots of interest in photo , the engine turntable can be clearly seen, along with an engine. The extension on the goods shed, as it had been reduced on other end to accommodate the building of the third station, in conjunction with the building of the third bridge. Cattle pens and railway stables for the shunting and delivery horses. The Todkils mill and of course the hydraulic for operating the swing bridge. The siding on river side to enable the unloading of the caissons and other material to construct the swing bridge.
Thanks to John Barker

John add two further of the station and the new photos taken about the same time.
