Inventory: Lists | Log | References | Condensed | Search

This is a list of all 3 bridges from the suspension bridge inventory crossing Ardèche River. Please note that different rivers with the same name will be grouped together. For example, selecting 'Bear Creek' shows bridges across several different Bear Creeks. Also, similarly named rivers are grouped separately. For example, 'River Dee' (UK) bridges are grouped separately from 'Dee River' (Australia) bridges. Wherever you see a "Bridgemeister ID" number you can click it to isolate the bridge on its own page.

  • AAJ notes the contract was let in late 1831 and guesses at 1833 as the year of completion. 1832 is more likely given the rate at which these early iron wire French bridges were constructed.
