These are the old trestle bridges which were used to cross the many streams and brooks,but also flood planes which the St-Ives to Huntingdon railway had to negotiate along its route.They were a constant fire hazzard because of the creosote which oozed out during the summer months to prevent rot and had a mandatory speed & weight limit,but considering the line closed in 1959-they're in remakable condition.
