Bridge 99 over the Kennet and Avon canal revisited
Bridge 99 over the Kennet and Avon canal revisited
After many years in stately decrepitude SU2663 : Bridge 99 over the Kennet and Avon canal the bridge has been comprehensively restored. Since the bridge serves no useful purpose, and hasn't for a long time, the reasons justifying its rehabilitation are unclear. Maybe there were concerns that the bridge might collapse. If this eventuality were to have occurred when a boat was passing underneath the consequences would undoubtedly be severe. Possibly there was a worry that persons on the bridge might fall off it into the canal and drown. All the same it seems sad that its decayed charm has been lost, at least until the bridge is re-colonised by vegetation.
