Odd that the grid refs for 2GL and 3GL differ significantly; would seem very unlikely that these were on different bridges. Plaque on S parapet dated 1937 so presumably the rebuild did for it.

No sign of FB; bridge rebuilt 1937. Only checked roadside - if only I'd looked streamside, I might have spotted the 3GL replacement!
