Opening of the Nene Valley Railway (1845)

171

Two fascinating illustrations dating to 1845 and the opening of what is now referred to locally as the Nene Valley Railway.

The footings to the original Lynch Bridge can still be seen today if you search them out in the woods and the bridge spanning the Nene survives today, albeit having been rebuilt and upgraded several times since the 1845 original.
