The Old Coltishall road bridge, pictured c1910.

This was Coltishall bridge in the aftermath of the great flood of August 26th 1912. The sheer volume of water, carrying debris from further upstream caused widespread damage and over 40 bridges were destroyed in the region. The story is covered further on the Norwich Postcards pages and also in the 1912 floods gallery blog post I wrote to commemorate the 100th anniversary in 2012.

This is the new road bridge which was erected at Coltishall following the 1912 flood, pictured here c1928.

A much earlier view, looking downstream from Coltishall road bridge c1906 when the Aylsham navigation was still in use. Note the trading wherry moored on the right.

Coltishall Staithe c1904 - you can see the edge of the “Bullards” brewery sign on the Rising Sun pub on the right. As previously mentioned, Coltishall played a major role in the region’s brewing industry and these buildings were originally part of a large maltings complex.
