This "hybrid" (cantilever/suspension) bridge crosses the Thames from Chelsea to Battersea. Each half of the cantilever structure is "supported by 16 straight wrought-iron bars radiating from the top of the highly ornamental cast-iron towers. The side girders of the parapets were hung from vertical steel suspenders." — Weinreb and Hibbert
