Crossing the river

Four times – and (quite by chance) in chronological order. The Iron Bridge dates from MDCCLXXIX (or 1779), the Coalport bridge was built in 1818. Next in sequence I’m crossing the Jackfield Memorial Footbridge, dating from 1922. My last crossing is over the modern ‘Free Bridge’. It replaced an earlier free bridge in 1994 – ‘free’ as in toll-free, unlike the 1779 bridge where a toll was levied. They’re all free now, of course.
