Brunel's Swivel Bridge was a crossing of the Cumberland Basin from its opening in 1849,to the construction of the replacement Plimsoll Bridge alongside, which opened in 1965. The bridge is constructed of wrought iron. It was originally located over the south entrance lock, but was shortened and moved to the north entrance lock in 1873.
As of 2020, the bridge and mechanism still exist, however, the bridge is not functional, and in an 'open' position, allowing shipping traffic to pass through. The bridge features on English Heritage's Heritage at Risk Register in 2020
