Westbury Street Bridge, Worcester
Westbury Street Bridge, Worcester
The bridge takes the Birmingham to Hereford railway over the Worcester and Birmingham Canal and Westbury Street, near the centre of Worcester. The bridge featured on a postage stamp for the 150 years of railways celebration. Various stories exist about the hole in the bridge, from dragon nests (fanciful) and civil war cannonballs (implausible) to engineering considerations (possible) and saving bricks (boring).
