Plymothian Bridges - Number 4

I was not quite sure whether to count this as 1 bridge or 2. I could have also have counted the older road bridge the end of which is clearly visible, and also a small pedestrian bridge which joins the footpath along the old railway to the road bridge. The road bridge itself also includes two crossings across rail tracks - one still in use, the other closed off and tracks removed. I felt it was probably easier to lump them all in together for now!

There is quite a complex history to the whole area when it comes to the railway tracks here which one day I hope to go into in more detail. A good potted history of the bridges here can be found on the Plymouth Data site here.

I have taken plenty of photos around these bridges many of which are now in another Tabblo here.
