Point of Interest

Shop Mobility

England / Europe

Windsor Shop Mobility is just inside the coach park and provides manual and powered wheelchair and scooters for use in Windsor for anyone who has difficulty walking.  Outside the mobility office stands the brick viaduct, known as ‘The Arches’, over which the Great Western Railway transports passengers to and from Slough. The branch line from Slough crosses the river by a bowstring bridge designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel, one of England’s greatest engineers. It opened in 1849, and is the oldest wrought iron structure still in commercial use anywhere in the world.It formed a model for the Royal Albert Bridge at Saltash. The line was originally carried on one of Brunel’s famous timber viaducts but the present brick structure replaced this in the 1860s.The Windsor bridge was Grade II listed in 1975.
