Bridge of Sighs, Cambridge

One of the most iconic bridges of Cambridge is the Bridge of Sighs. This is the only covered bridge over the River Cam. It belongs of St John’s College and connects the college’s Third Court and New Court. The architect was Henry Hutchinson and it was built in 1831. Strangely, on two separate occasions students have pulled the prank of dangling a car under the bridge, first in 1963 and then again in 1968. Unfortunately I do not have a photograph of either prank!
