It's the familiar little blue bridge that crosses the River Stour.

A toll bridge was originally built on the site in 1882 to create an easy link between Bournemouth and Christchurch.

The wooden structure was built on iron piles and was opened to traffic in May 1883.

Tuckton Bridge was purchased by Bournemouth Corporation in 1904 to allow trams to cross to Christchurch.

Bournemouth Echo:

For this to happen, a replacement bridge was built out of reinforced concrete that would bear the weight of the trams.

Although using concrete in such a way was popular around that time, Tuckton Bridge is one of the oldest examples of Hennebique ferro-concrete construction in the country and was the longest of its kind.

That said, it's still a relatively small bridge in the grand scheme of things – measuring 347ft.
