Primary / Secondary References

Plate 73 is a view looking north taken from above the northern portal of Rise Hill Tunnel (see SCRCA structure 254840) on 1 October 1957.  Bridge 102 can be seen adjacent to the Platelayers' Hut (see SCRCA structure 254920).

Plate 74 is a detail view of Bridge 102 in October 1984.  The bridge is officially known as Handleys.  It shows the typically constructed segmentally-arched underbridge.  Many of these small bridges were, for some reason, constructed without a parapet wall, the protective element being provided by iron railings.

Structure Location Map

Tips: This structure is located approximnately at the centre of the map below at the pointed end of the red marker. To adjust the scale of the map, either click on the [+] and [-] buttons (if Google has displayed these in the top-left corner of the map) or double-click your mouse buttons anywhere in the map area: left button = [+] = zoom-in, right button = [-] = zoom out). To 'pan' (move) the map, hold-down the left mouse button, then move the mouse. To open an information bubble containing brief details of the structure, left-click on the red marker. Please note that the position of the marker is approximate because Google keeps moving the map (yes, really!).
