The Old Severn Bridge, Beachley, England

The first Severn crossing for the M4 was opened in 1966 and subsequently superseded by the newer and bigger crossing down river. This older bridge features heavily in my memories of travelling to Pembrokeshire as a child, as well as later visits to friends at university in Cardiff. Traffic is now light and the old motorway services building at Aust is now privately owned.
