Cumbria Bridges: 4. CKPR Bridge 67
Carrying on along the trail from Keswick to Threlkeld, the next bridge after Bridge 66 is ... Bridge 67.
Like Bridge 66, it has been strengthened with the addition of a single plate girder between the trusses, which can be seen more clearly on these photographs. Cross-bracing connects the two trusses below the soffit of the central girder, while towards the ends of the span the trusses are connected directly to the girder with short stubs.
I'll come back to another bridge later on in this set which shows the details even more clearly.
