This iron bridge carried the Wappenham to Weedon Lois road over the NBJR. You can see engraved on the bridge "Barnwell and Co, Eagle Foundry, Northampton, 1871." They are listed in the 1869 Kelly's guide as stove, grate and range manufacturers, so building bridge girders must have been an impressive job for them. The bridge bears some similarity to Bridge No 1 at Blisworth.
