Great Britain: Gasworks Siding Bridge

About 600 ft downstream from the Midland Road Bridge (shown in background) is the Gasworks Siding Bridge. It is a two span steel, through girder bridge across the River Avon. It's only interesting feature is the two-column bent with decorated capitals that supports the bridge at midspan.

This bridge once carried a railroad siding and still carries a 12 inch pipe into the gasworks. In the Google Earth photo below you can see the small tank farm (south of the river), the two Windsor Bridges, the Gasworks Siding Bridge, and the Midland Road Bridge.
