Primary / Secondary References

Plate 166 shows under bridge no 288 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) (/scrca/structure-summary/235300) but the need for extensive wing walls with relieving arches does not exist here.

Four additional structures in the Langwathby area were strengthened as part of the programme.

The contract for bridges no 279 (/scrca/structure-summary/286560) and no 286 (/scrca/structure-summary/287830), together with another seven bridges on the route, was awarded to W Richards, Phoenix Works, Leicester, for the sum of £830.

Bridge no 287 (/scrca/structure-summary/287960), the fourth, was upgraded in a contract awarded to Eastwood, Swingler & Co, Derby for £450 8s 2d (£480.41) for this and four other bridges.


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!).
