Snippet Detail

Plate 166 shows under bridge no 288 (/location-summaries/structure-288330) in October 1964.  It was strengthened in 1904 in line with the Midland Railway decision to upgrade the line.  The wrought-iron members were supplemented by the addition of a steel centre girder, connected to the cross-girders by steel hanger bolts.

This type of bridge is similar to Bridge no 2 at Anley (Plate 6) but the need for extensive wing walls with relieving arches does not exist here.
