Bob Watkin's drawings of Foundations as expected of the Brunel Swivel Bridge

Bob Watkins predicted that there would be large timber beams just under the ground, supporting the turn-table wheels.

Mike B, Josh and Bob dug down in August 2014 to see if they existed, and sure enough discovered a 12 inch square baulk to everyone's delight. Hammering a screwdriver into it revealed that most of the timber was sound, although damp, and it smelled strongly of tar, so presumably had been treated when installed.
