Images of the renovated Leamington Lift Bridge. The bridge, fully restored by British Waterways in Autumn 2002, dates from the beginning of last century and was originally located on Fountainbridge.

The bridge was moved to its current location at Gilmore Park in the 1920’s when the Port Hopetoun (now Lothian House and Excel House) and Port Hamilton (now Scottish Widows’ Headquarters) basins were sold and backfilled.
