After he'd scampered over the inner gate of the lock, Mr Monkey paused to look at the Plimsol Bridge. This is a swing bridge built in 1965 and is named after Samuel Plimsoll, inventor of the Plimsoll line, who was born in Bristol. Mr Monkey found a selection of interesting looking levers but his humans wouldn't let him move any of them, just in case something happened.
