Recently refurbished bridge over the line in Haigh Plantations, note the new cast iron railings on the left of the photo.

They've spoiled the look of that bridge by putting crash barriers on it.
I wonder if they would have done that in Royal Windsor park.

Captured the Autumn colours well Harry. Can't see the point of the Armco, think it ruins a lovely bridge. Am I missing something or is it health and safety madness yet again?

I remember them barriers being put up for the RAC Rally which had a section through the plantations in the 80s and 1997 Mick, they do look a bit out of place,good photo Harry.

Thanks for your comments all. I must agree with you about the barriers spoiling the look of the bridge, I was informed that the stonework is going to be repointed next year and the railings repainted. David I also remember taking photos of the rally in 1983 and 1984, I think the Audi Quatro had just come into production. H.
