Video: Exploring the ruins of an abandoned railway bridge

Published

on

Was out doing some urban exploring and found the remains of an old abandoned railway bridge. There is not much left only the stone pillars and stone embankment, the tracks have long been ripped out. The railroad ties were left embedded along the top of the embankment but they are in severe decay. This abandoned rail-road bridge is located just outside of Woodstock and is easily accessible.

Abandoned Bridge in Lambton County

Published

on

Here is a beautiful old abandoned iron bridge in Lambton County Ontario along River Road just a short drive from Grand Bend. Located in such a peaceful setting, nature is slowly reclaiming this old bridge. I have this bridge listed in Lambton County but could also be considered located in Middlesex County as it crossed the Ausable River (The Cut) which is the boundary between Middlesex County and Lambton County. There is not much information available online about this bridge other than it has been closed and abandoned for about 20 years. I am not sure if this bridge is located on private property or if it is still considered public property, it is easily accessible via a dead end lane. The location of this old abandoned bridge can be found on our Abandoned Places in Ontario Map.

Exploring the Meadowlily bridge

Published

on

Today I headed back to visit the Meadowlily bridge in London, Ontario for a second time. I first encountered this bridge earlier in the spring when I had to cross it when I was urban exploring the Ruins of Meadowlily Mill. I wanted to go back and take some more photos of this historicity significant and beautiful iron truss bridge that has spanned the Thames River and has been in service for more that 100 years.

Now the Meadowlily bridge is not abandoned per-say any more, it was restored in 2013 and hopefully it will stand for another 100 years. There was an earlier wooden bridge at this site since the mid 1800’s which allowed local farmers to access the Mill on the north bank of the Thames River just beyond the bridge. The wooden bridge was replaced with the current iron bridge in 1910. The bridge was closed to vehicular traffic in 1965, but continued to be used by pedestrians to cross the Thames.

The location of this bridge is on our Abandoned Places in Ontario Map.
