About David Lennox
David Lennox was a renowned bridge-builder and master stonemason who designed and oversaw the construction of the iconic sandstone Lennox Bridge in Parramatta in the late 1830s.
Spanning the Parramatta River, one of Sydney’s great inland waterways, its simple stone arch is 24 metres long and 12 metres wide. Named Lennox Bridge in 1867 in honour of its creator, it remains one of the city’s finest landmarks.
A man of great vision and technical skill, David also spearheaded countless other well-known bridges and public works projects.
