Appleford Railway Bridge. Probably built in the late 1920s when a number of railway bridges in the area were replaced with arched steel structures

Appleford Railway Bridge carries the Cherwell Valley Line from Didcot to Oxford across the River Thames near the village of Appleford-on-Thames, Oxfordshire, England. It crosses the Thames on the reach between Clifton Lock and Culham Lock.

The bridge was under construction in December 1843.

Brunel's original bridge (1843) was a timber construction, replaced in the 1850s by an iron girder bridge.
