SO6702 : High & Low Level bridges, Sharpness Docks

taken 12 years ago, near to Sharpness, Gloucestershire, Great Britain

High & Low Level bridges, Sharpness Docks
High & Low Level bridges, Sharpness Docks
Sharpness Docks developed after a new dock was constructed in 1870 to accommodate larger vessels which could not pass up the Gloucester & Sharpness canal. The railway lines which crossed these bridges connected to the Great Western and Midland network which provided an alternative to transportation by canal.

The photo was taken from the canal towpath.
