Looks like a beam bridge with a railing

If you are referring to the bridge to the SW, zoomed street view and from above makes me think strictly modern footbridge.

I see it George. Eyes are no longer acute enough to tell if its an old repurposed bridge or a not notable footbridge. Maybe another bridgehunter can discern what it may be. Good eye to spot it George.

George this MAY be Bridge Mentioned in Reading Eagle. Not in NBI but sounds like description. What do you think?
