SP4282 : Oxford Canal: M6 Motorway Bridge

taken 7 years ago, near to Withybrook, Warwickshire, Great Britain

Oxford Canal: M6 Motorway Bridge
Oxford Canal: M6 Motorway Bridge
The motorway also crosses the West Coast Main Line railway here, so this is quite a coming together of various methods of transport in an otherwise fairly featureless agricultural grid square, without even a yellow road. It is interesting to compare this image with Ray's SP4282 : M6 bridge over the Oxford Canal taken 8 years earlier to see how the vegetation has grown up and outwards since, in particular on the non-towpath side of the canal to the right, resulting in the passing of boats going in the opposite direction needing a little care.
