The opening of "Harry Potter" bridge (former Kings Cross footbridge) at Ropley Station, Hampshire.

Following on from my last blog post here is my video of the official opening ceremony of the "Harry Potter" bridge at Ropley station, on the Watercress Line in Hampshire.

This footbridge was made right here in Derby in 1892 at the former Britannia Ironworks on Duke Street by Andrew Handyside and Company.

This bridge goes by many names, as well as Harry Potter Bridge its also called "Handyside Bridge" and was originally called King's Cross station footbridge.
