This is a suspension bridge that stands over the River Thames. It lies between the town of Marlow in Buckinghamshire and Bisham in Windsor and Maidenhead. The bridge was designed by William Tierney Clark and was built between 1829 and 1832, replacing a wooden bridge further downstream which collapsed in 1828. There has been a bridge on this site since the reign of King Edward III. A bridge that spans the River Danube in Budapest, was also designed by William Clark and it is a larger scale version of Marlow bridge.
