The Silver Jubilee Bridge..

..or the Runcorn-Widnes Bridge, or the Widnes-Runcorn Bridge, depending on your particular point of view. What’s not up for debate is that it crosses the River Mersey between Widnes and Runcorn and is, believe it or not, a Grade II listed building.

I had a quick glance at Wikipedia to check a couple of things before including them on here, but the following sentence stopped me in my tracks and made any other comment seem pointless:

“The bridge transformed Runcorn from an effective cul-de-sac into a town with through traffic”
