The Forth Bridges Through Time, Paperback / softback Book

The Forth Bridges Through Time Paperback / softback

Part of the Through Time series


The River Forth is one of Scotland's great waterways.

It has a majestic history and heritage, part of which is the Forth bridges.

Of these, the most iconic is the Forth Rail Bridge, which opened in 1890.

But there is also the Kincardine Bridge, opened in 1936 and once the longest swing bridge in Europe, the Forth Road Bridge, opened in 1964, and the new Queensferry Crossing, due to be completed in 2016. In this book, Michael Meighan looks at all these bridges as well as the Clackmannanshire Bridge and the fords, ferries and smaller bridges which preceded these great crossings.

The Forth crossings have a special place in the history and culture of Scotland, and in the hearts of all Scots, and Michael Meighan pays tribute to them in a wonderful mix of both old and new images.
