Piers and Abutments

By DicksPics
The lead image and V1 were taken on a walk along the River Severn from Bewdley to what remains of the former Dowles Bridge.

Dowles Bridge once carried the Tenbury & Bewdley Railway over the River Severn around one mile north of Bewdley in Worcestershire.

The Tenbury & Bewdley Railway was a branch line of the Great Western Railway from what is now the preserved Severn Valley Railway; it ran to Tenbury in Shropshire.

The line ran its first passenger train on the 5th August 1864; its a last in 1962.

V2 is a picture of the bridge from 1864 and is included for context purposes. Thank you

Many thanks for all votes and comments on my 'Concentration' upload and, especially, to Dave, Peter and Lillian for their wonderful awards - very much appreciated, as always!SmileSmile

I hope your week has started well.

An excellent set and even better with notes on the history of the bridge. There are many disused railway bridges, some of which have been changed for foot and car traffic. It would be a good exercise seeking them out and photographing them before they disappear for ever. I like the reflection in V1. Richard, and the original image is interesting with the train on the bridge.

The stonework was certainly built to last. Good find with V2 to illustrate how the bridge looked originally. Great composition for the lead shot

Stellar reflection in V1 Richard .I like that one a lot ... the last version makes me think how far technology has come in regards to
things like the bullet trains we have nowadays .

Very nice Richard. Love the reflections.
Excellent images Richard.
I know that area pretty well, as many years ago my parents had a caravan on the site just down from there - brings back memories. Grin
