NS - Winchester Bridge
Posted July 4, 2021, by John Marvig (marvigj27 [at] gmail [dot] com)

I have no clue where a date of 1975 comes from, but that seems highly improbable given the design. It is possible that the bridge was repaired then, but it seems far more likely the superstructure dates to a range of 1900 to 1940.
