Skewed bridge

 I went biking to High Wycombe and en route there is a really amazing brick arch bridge. The train line and the road cross at a non-right angle. To solve the geometry, the builders built a series of straight vaults, each offset slightly with respect to its neighbours.

The brickwork is also really interesting- lots of different bonding patterns.
