SP1678 : Sandalls Bridge

taken 8 years ago, near to Solihull, Great Britain

Sandalls Bridge
Sandalls Bridge
Looking downstream to the bridge which carried the road from Solihull to Warwick, part of the A41 London-Birmingham-Birkenhead trunk route, across the River Blythe until 1976, when it was bypassed. Its early history is unknown, but it must have been already old by 1855 when at the Warwickshire Quarter Sessions the county was indicted for failing to repair it. The original structure has three semi-circular arches in local sandstone, and the blue brick parapet and coping probably date from 1924 LinkExternal link when the roadway was widened to cope with the burgeoning traffic of the motor age. The bridge lies almost on the gridline; for the view downstream into the next square north see LinkExternal link
River Blythe
The River Blythe flows through the West Midlands. It is a tributary of the River Tame.
