User contributed information about Three Bridges No 205
There are in fact 3 bridges here - Known locally as Three Bridges, it was part of the last railway project engineered by Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Work began in 1856 to carry both a road (Windmill Lane) and the canal over the Great Western and Brentford Railway in a deep cutting at the same point; so that the line of the railway would avoid violating Osterley Park. The principle design features of the bridge are a central brick pier supporting large metal beams which surround the canal in an 8 ft deep cast iron trough and vertical girders and side walls with arches which support the road.
