This beautiful little bridge has been subjected to some horrific repairs in recent years. A brace was welded to the South portal that hides the lovely cast portal decorations unique to this company. Every cylindrical eyebar was replaced with steel rods with large clamp fittings that look terrible.
Hopefully the recent restoration of the Alton Bridge will give hope to a better repair job to this bridge in the near future.
