taken 10 years ago, near to Garthmyl, Powys, Great Britain

Perfection in cast iron
Perfection in cast iron
By the mid 19th century the surveyors and iron masters working in the Welsh Marches had fine tuned the use of cast iron to produce magnificent bridges such as this one at Caerhowel. Their beautiful symmetry and fineness of structure had never been seen before, or since for that matter. This is one of the best that was made at The Brymbo Works.
