Brunel's Sounding Arch Over The Thames (Downstream Side), Maidenhead - Berkshire.

The bridge was designed by the Great Western's engineer, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, and it was completed in 1838, but not brought into use until 1 July 1839. The railway is carried across the river on two brick arches, which at the time of building were the widest and flattest in the world.
