Askew over the cut-Ryeford, Glos
This is allegedly the original skew bridge from the 1867 construction of the Stonehouse to Nailsworth Railway which carried the line over the Stroudwater Canal. The last ever passenger service on the line ran on 16th June 1947 and the line closed to freight in 1966. The ground formation here gave rise to problems in construction, hence the skewed bridge. The bridge now carries NCN (National Cycle Network) route no 45 from Salisbury to Chester. This photo was taken on the day of a Railway Ramblers walk from Stroud to Nailsworth. Time taken 12.10 pm BST (British Summer Time).
