dorsets-legacy-bridges-3cDorset’s bridges, as with the rest of the country, have played a huge role in enabling social, industrial and cultural development. They range from tiny structures to major engineering achievements, the first recorded bridge in the county is at Whitemill, Sturminster Marshall, and the most recent on the Weymouth Relief road.

Michael Russell Wood has selected his favourites from the packhorse bridges to the railway viaducts, the classical to the modern. He tells of some of their history and stories related to them as well as illustrating them all with superb photographs. Map references are included in the book so anyone can easily find them and discover their beauty for themselves.
