Time for a mystery and a request from a TD commenter.
Are there any specialists here who could shed light on this bridge? It is one that has appeared on an Aldershot canal in 1939. There is no evidence of it today and so I am assuming it is a temporary army bridge but there seems to be a lot of speculation and not much fact. The counterweight seen in it’s reflection might hold some clue maybe?
The bridge in question
After consulting my big book of bridges It doesn’t look like a military bridge per se but it still might have been built for military use or by the Royal Engineers.
The image originates from here
So if it is in the Aldershot/Farnborough area it is probably over the Basingstoke Canal.
The Basingstoke Canal Society has a very good website
With a full list of bridges
If I had to hazard a guess it would be
But that would be a wild guess
Anyone shed any light on this?
