Hunningham high bridge in the snow (3)
Hunningham high bridge in the snow (3)
Looking south at the deck of Hunningham high bridge. This impressive (and pioneering) example of Victorian civil engineering spans the now-dismantled Rugby to Leamington railway line at the site of the former Marton Junction. It carries an ancient track, Ridgeway Lane, over the 60-feet-deep cutting where the railway pierced 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.
