taken 10 years ago, near to Hunningham, Warwickshire, Great Britain

The high bridge, Hunningham
The high bridge, Hunningham
The underside of the bridge.The bridge carries an ancient track called Ridgeway Lane (now a county unclassified unmetalled road) over the now-dismantled Rugby to Leamington line. The cutting, approximately 60 feet deep, took the railway through a ridge of high ground between Hunningham Hill and Snowford.

The single-span wrought-iron bridge is of trussed lattice girder construction and when built in 1851 it was the longest such bridge ever constructed. In later years, four lattice columns and cross-ties were added to reinforce the original structure
