Farndon Bridge – does anyone remember it?

Above is a photo that was lent to Alan Langley some years ago, looking down the Farndon Road from the Welland Park end. The railway bridge is clearly visible. This bridge was not there in December 1973, so does anyone remember it? or know when it was taken down?

Nowadays it’s hard to believe it was ever there, but of course Rugby Close takes its name from the Rugby to Stamford line which crossed the bridge.
