SP4642 : Oxford Canal: Railway Bridge Number 161A

taken 8 months ago, near to Banbury, Oxfordshire, Great Britain

Oxford Canal: Railway Bridge Number 161A
Oxford Canal: Railway Bridge Number 161A
Because the railway was built a long time after the canal, the bridge number had to have a suffix, falling, as it does, between the original Bridge Numbers 160 and 161. In fact Bridge Number 160 can be seen in the distance just before Hardwick Lock.

This bridge originally carried the Great Western Railway's twin track Oxford & Birmingham Branch over the canal. At some point it was widened to take a third track, but that has now been removed, leaving just the shape of the bridge abutments to show its previous presence.
