SU5984 : Moulsford Railway Bridge, River Thames

taken 40 years ago, near to Moulsford, Oxfordshire, Great Britain

Moulsford Railway Bridge, River Thames
Moulsford Railway Bridge, River Thames
This is actually two bridges very close together. The original Brunel bridge of 1839 was duplicated in 1892 so that four standard-gauge tracks could be
incorporated. This is the third of the bridges by Brunel which have the 'flat arch' structure, best known from his Maidenhead bridge which was widely predicted to collapse (it is, of course, still there).
Above this bridge are two small islands in the river which are reputed to be haunted.
