Chelsea Bridge is a bridge over the river Thames in West London connecting Chelsea on the North bank to Battersea on the South. It was first opened in 1858, by Queen Victoria and was named Victoria Bridge in her honour.
It connected the wealthy area of Chelsea with the area of Battersea Park and was part of a regeneration of the area south of the river by the government. The materials used to make the bridge came from what was then parts of the British Empire, steel came from Yorkshire and Scotland, the fir tree timber from Canada and the granite from Cornwall and Aberdeen; and the asphalt came from Trinidad. In the 1950's it was a popular Friday night meeting point for bikers who regularly staged stunts or races whilst crossing the bridge.
Battersea Power Station is part of this iconic river view today and Chelsea Bridge supports the passage of 40,000 passengers by foot, bike and motor vehicles daily.
