No 176. Moulsford Rail Bridge

Another of Brunel’s bridges built for the GWR and constructed in 1839, this bridge has a height of 21’8” and consists of a set of beautiful brick arches set on a slant to the river.   The complicated brickwork is best examined from underneath where the skill of he construction can be appreciated.   Although fairly close to both Goring and Wallingford the river at this point feels quite isolated due to farming on both banks and very few houses visible. The small islands immediately upstream are said to be haunted so moor here at your peril.
