The lift bridge on Creek Road (the A200 from London to Greenwich) crosses the tidal creek of the River Ravensbourne. It was built c.1954 to replace an earlier structure. As of 2015 it was still being lifted regularly at high tide for boatloads of aggregates to reach the adjacent concrete batching plant.
