Bridge 448 to the north of Rugby.

Bridge 448 to the north of Rugby.

Go back to the records from the Newton map.
L1917. Bridge 448 was a four span girder bridge that crossed the Oxford Canal just to the north of Rugby. The bridge had two spans of 90 feet, one at 91 feet and another at 120 feet. This view was taken in June 1977 and shows the view looking south over the end of the northern abutment. The southern abutment can be seen in the distance. Note the huge rectangular capstones that have been tipped off their supporting brickwork.
