taken 9 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
