TQ0097 : Metropolitan Line bridge MR103

Metropolitan Line bridge MR103
Metropolitan Line bridge MR103
A three arch bridge with brick arches and parapets, but what looks like concrete infill and pier bases, but this may just be rendering. A bridleway crosses, at this level a green identification plate (just visible through the fence on the left) describes its location as 'Old Hanging Wood', which is the wood across the railway. On the other hand, at rail level a white identification plate states 'MR103 Footpath from A404' which is not strictly accurate, it is a bridleway. In the foreground is an old land slip. The top has been stabilized with caged stone. This repair is labelled 'RRW2042'. A further indication of instability in this area is that the far bridge pilaster has on its inner face a Leica sighting target, presumably for optically monitoring any bridge settlement - see TQ0097 : Target on Metropolitan Line bridge MR103 . It may be an illusion, but the far parapet does look slightly curved towards that end compared with the near one.
