A pity we have no photos of the building of the original hairpin bridge..

Whilst in Tilbury recently, I thought I`d have a look at the new hairpin bridge.

I was horrified to find it is only a footbridge.

How on earth can you get over to the dwellings side by car now. What a carve up its Miles either end of Tilbury to get there now.
